RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - Reno Resilient delivered 30 boxes of donated clothing items to Alice Smith Elementary.

The organization is teaming up with the School to help keep kids warm.

The need is real.

For example, there are about 750 students at Alice Smith Elementary, but about 500 kids could use this kind of support.

“I can’t express how important that is. It means everything when you’re able to give children socks, shoes, something that’s going to give them warmth,” said the Principal for Alice Smith Elementary, Arch Ruth. Organizers are collecting winter essentials like shoes, socks, underwear, jackets, and hats.

Items are available to purchase on a virtual Amazon store to align with appropriate safety guidelines.

The drive continues through January of 2021.

The donation drive continues through next month.
