This year’s Back-2-School Giveaway will be held on Saturday, August 11th at West Flamingo Park from 11am-3pm. We put this event together each year, as our way to provide families an opportunity to receive necessary school supplies to help the youth excel in their studies. Our mission is to promote literacy and academic enrichment.
Our vision is to give children the opportunity to have reliable resources and tools needed for the new school year to excel in their studies. We want to help solve a problem in our community, we understand this time of year can be tough, so we welcome you to join us grades K-12. The event will feature school supply giveaways, raffled prizes, food and beverages, a live D.J. and activities promoting literacy for the youth in our community. Students grades 5-12 are encouraged to bring their local library card for a chance to win a free laptop and printer. We encourage character development, life skills, and education; we highlight qualities such as honesty, responsibility, time management, self-awareness, good health, and communication through this initiative. With Nevada’s primary schools ranked 50th in the nation in terms of “Chance for Success” according to Education Week, The Floyd Mayweather Jr. Foundation will continue to advance and promote its core principle of putting education first. Early arrival is encouraged, as the supplies will be handed out on a first come, first serve basis.
