Clark County, NV (KTNV) -- With a new school year approaching, the Clark County Department of Family Services, Fostering Southern Nevada and Foster Kinship are coming together to ask the community to donate new backpacks, school supplies and uniforms for kids in foster care.
Donations should be brought to Peggy's Attic, located at 701 North Pecos Road.
The goal is to receive 500 backpacks and school supplies to fill the backpacks by Aug. 20.
Last year, DFS and Fostering Southern Nevada collected and distributed more than 300 backpacks filled with school supplies.
The donations will then be distributed on Wednesday, Aug. 21 at Peggy's Attic from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
