Prepped for School Event
Brought Big Smiles


Las Vegas, NV - Months of hard work and planning came to light on August 17, when the Prepped for School campaign fulfilled its promise of providing backpacks and much needed school supplies for the nearly 850 students of Robert E. Lake Elementary School in Las Vegas, Nevada. 

The campaign was championed by our Director of Operations, Zachary Lopez and his childhood friend Alex Lee who is the co-owner of FoodieFit in Las Vegas. The two have been friends since 1st grade and worked together last year in a meal-for-meal campaign that raised over 10,000 meals. Zac and Alex both wanted to reach a bigger goal this year and initiated the Prepped for School campaign. 

This year, FoodieFit 's focus was to help local children in their own backyard. Robert E. Lake Elementary is a Title I school – meaning a high percentage of their students come from low-income families. The campaign was created to help alleviate the financial burdens that fall upon the parents in providing the necessary school supplies that would enable their children to achieve their highest potential.

The community responded enthusiastically to the Prepped for School campaign with big donations coming in from Richard Harris Law Firm, Backstreet Boys along with numerous small businesses showing their support. The campaign raised over $30,000 which will also provide a new school garden complete with a pergola and outdoor classroom, in addition to a wall of fame for all supporters.

The campaign was a shining example of a community coming together to help their fellow neighbors. One teacher exclaimed “It's refreshing to see how many people care about our students and their education!” Even after the event had wrapped, and the volunteers had long gone, the smiles on the children’s faces didn’t fade – All day I just saw huge smiles on the students faces when they wore their brand new backpacks!”  
A special thank you to FoodieFit, Richard Harris Law Firm, the Backstreet Boys and everyone else who made  this event a success!.
