Starting the school year with the necessary supplies promotes learning, boosts self-esteem and helps keep kids in school. While you are out shopping in the coming weeks, please consider picking up a few extra items for underprivileged children here in Reno. Through Aug. 3, FirstService Residential is sponsoring a school supplies drive to benefit Virginia Palmer Elementary in Sun Valley. Items needed include:

  • #2 pencils (10-pack)
  • Ink pens (10-pack)
  • Highlighters/Markers (5-pack)
  • Composition notebooks
  • Crayons (box of 24)
  • Glue Sticks (2-pack)
  • Reams of copy paper
  • Packs of construction paper
  • Scissors

This is a state-wide competition within FirstService, but also between associations specifically in Northern Nevada. While it would be great for Somersett to win, the ultimate winner will be the kids at Virginia Palmer Elementary. Please consider donating, and share this flyer with anyone you think would like to contribute.

Please drop off your donations at the Concierge desk at the Club. Thank you in advance!
