IT’S THAT TIME OF YEAR! BACK TO SCHOOL!

We’re excited to be running Project Backpack for the 2nd year in a row! We’ve given 12,000 backpacks full of school supplies to local students. We’re so happy to help students in our community get ready for a much more normal year of learning and fun! The backpacks are stuffed with awesome gear, so students will be set for an even more awesome school year! We’re so glad to have the chance to give back to the community we love so much.

 

Our story

Thousands of school children go without backpacks and the essential supplies they need to succeed in school. Wanting to make a difference in the Las Vegas Valley, Richard Harris set out on a mission to get backpacks and school supplies into the hands of some of the neediest schools in the Clark County School District through his Project Backpack initiative. Through the generous support of local volunteers and the attorneys and staff of Richard Harris Law Firm, Project Backpack will once again have a strong launch at the start of this fall’s school year. This will mark our 2nd official year of Project Backpack, and by the end of it, we will have donated over 24,000 backpacks full of supplies to area school kids.
