Local Leaders Collect $30,000 in Cash, Food, Personal Care and School Supplies for our At Risk Students, Families


Principal Robert Gerye accepts checks from community volunteers.

About 20 volunteers delivered more than $30,000 in cash, food, hygiene products, and school supplies collected for students at Spring Valley High during a 7-day Giver Game ìAdopt-a-Schoolî stretch. Giver Game is a volunteer philanthropy project developed by ChoiceCenter Leadership University that is the “Amazing Race” version of charitable giving.
Many of Spring Valley High Schoolís 2,400 students are struggling in this economy. They rely on the school to provide for their basic needs with items like toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorant, shampoo, razors and other hygiene products. Spring Valley also has a Food Bank on campus.
Leadership students, many from outside Las Vegas, raised more than $13,000 in cash and $20,000 in items to support the kids and the school. Proving that it doesn’t take a lot of time or money to make a big difference, no individual donation was larger than $500, with the average donation around $25.
Giver Game is a volunteer and community support project developed by ChoiceCenter Leadership University that challenges people to complete one act of kindness daily.
ChoiceCenter Leadership University, founded in 1997, is a leader in Emotional Intelligence and leadership training, as well as business and life coaching. The Leadership Legacy program includes weekly community service for individuals through Giver Game.
The Spring Valley community would like to thank Giver Game and the ChoiceCenter Leadership University for giving back to the community at a time when it is most needed.  it is easier to take than receive, many times, but these groups have shown the caring and generosity of the Las Vegas Community!
