Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Companies use them and companies throw them away. But a Las Vegas woman realized that kids need them. And Kimberly Cyr is now making Las Vegas a better place to live.
It seems like such a simple thing -- binders. But Kimberly Cyr saw thousands of them being thrown away and started the non profit Bind4Kids
She consults for Puliz Records Management Services. They shred and handle millions of documents. And now, they refurbish binders and donate them by the truckload to local schools.
Kimberly told us, "I'm a huge advocate for children and education. I have four children and I know they are expensive. It's a necessary tool for school, but a lot of kids don't have the opportunity to have the proper tools."
The principal of Carrol Johnston Middle School told Action News this is a huge service to her students. She said her school counselors hand out 8 or 9 binders every single day.
