CIRCUS CIRCUS RENO DONATES OVER $2,500 IN SCHOOL SUPPLIES
Circus Circus Reno employees banded together to help the community by collecting over 140 backpacks filled with school supplies for students at two Reno elementary schools. The total of all school supplies donated came out to $2,500.
“This is one of the many ways Circus Circus Reno reaches out to the community,” said Carol Arnold, a Slot Analyst who oversaw the drive. “We’ve been partnering with these schools for a long time and want to continue to help them in any way we can.”
Circus Circus Reno has organized school supply drives for the past six years. The efforts support Silver Lake and Lemon Valley elementary schools, both schools in need of assistance. This year’s drive turned out really well with the backpack supplier, Pure Promotions, matching the 75 backpacks Circus Reno donated, allowing us to give each school 80 backpacks.
“We have about 600 students and 46 percent of them qualify for free and reduced lunch, so we have a large percentage of students who are in need,” said Silver Lake Elementary Principal Ann Marie Dickson. “School supplies can be expensive and many kids are embarrassed to show up to school without them. Circus Circus Reno’s support provides an emotional boost to our students, teachers and the community.”
Drive organizers had employees from every department involved. Each department was responsible for a different school supply in order to collect everything needed for Northern Nevada students—including crayons, scissors, pencils, erasers, rulers, tissues and notebook paper.
Circus Circus Reno is an MGM Resorts International® Destination with six unique dining options including local favorites the Steakhouse at Circus, Kokopelli’s Sushi and Dos Geckos Cantina. Enjoy the free circus acts at the midway as well as games for all ages.
