Back to School Backpacks for the Children

By Amanda Henderson, Director of Accreditation – Western Region, WestCare Foundation

On Saturday, July 30, the Raider Nation Wrecking Crew brought 30 backpacks to the WestCare Nevada Women and Children’s Campus (WCC) for their kids that are heading back to school. Each backpack is pre-filled with assorted school supplies for its new student owner.

This wonderful group continues to show their support for WCC, Harris Springs Ranch, and our 4th Street men’s transitional living program all year round, from Santa drops ala Raider Nation style of assorted new clothing items to much needed and always appreciated hygiene and delicious treats.

We send our WestCare love and appreciation for each blessing that they bestow on us. Thank You and “Go, Raiders!”

Additionally, Ms. Brittney Lease, Order Management Specialist II and Community Events Coordinator for Caltrol, Inc., graciously delivered backpacks so that the children of parents currently receiving treatment at a WestCare Nevada facility could return to school prepared. The backpacks were stuffed with school supplies to aid the children in the classroom.

Much like the Raider Nation Wrecking Crew, Caltrol, Inc. has also partnered with us by conducting other events such as a Thanksgiving food drive and a toy drive during the Christmas/Holiday Season. WestCare clients and their families have truly benefited from the generosity of Caltrol, Inc. and their employees. Thank you for Uplifting the Human Spirit of our programs and those that we serve!
