Our Summer is flying right by, but there's still lots of time to do some good for others! You're invited to join in with our Summer Pop Up Stops throughout the next couple of months as we stand alongside some incredible non-profit organizations and help them resupply for those they serve!
Our SOS Summer Pop Up Stops may feel very familiar to you if you've participated with the SOS Summer Passport last year. It's a super simple process! You simply STOP, POP, and DROP!
WHEN: Now - Friday, August 6th at 5pm (Drop off donations weekdays between 9am - 5pm)
WHERE: SOS Radio Studios! (Just a block down on S. 6th St. off of E. Sahara)
2201 S. 6th St., Las Vegas, NV 89104
THE NEED: Backpacks and School Supplies
WHY THOSE ITEMS?
Growing up can be hard. Without a stable home, positive role models, or access to proper resources, many students find themselves facing constant struggles; especially when it comes to their education.
Nevada itself has the third-highest population of at-risk youth in the country. And you can be a part of providing these kids with an opportunity for success, by equipping them with the tools they'll need for the upcoming school year!
For our final Summer Pop-Up Stop, we’re partnering with two incredible non-profits that serve at-risk youth in our community: the Police Athletic League and Safely Home Refugee Ministry. Both organizations are in need of Backpacks and Supplies for a total of 200 kids!
So for the next two weeks, the goal is to make sure that all 200 kids have a new backpack stuffed with school supplies!
You’re invited to drop off backpacks and school supplies, every weekday, right here at SOS Radio Studios during business hours, through the afternoon of Friday, August 6th.
You can even order online and have your donation sent right to us! Our address is 2201 S. 6th Street, Las Vegas, NV 89104!
