There is Still Time to Donate!

No minimum donation is required and any amount helps towards the end goal. Sierra Nevada Properties has donated $2,500 towards Libby Booth Elementary’s Wellness Center in coordination with Communities In Schools and is asking local businesses and individuals to support this one-of-a-kind cause by matching the $2,500 donation.

How: Donate your $2,500 matching gift (or the amount you like) directly to Communities In Schools benefitting Libby Booth Elementary’s Wellness Center HERE or scan below.

Why: Students of Libby Booth encounter poverty, food insecurity & housing insecurity at a rate higher than any other Washoe County school. This can lead to lots of big emotions & the Wellness Center helps students in need work through difficult times. The secure & calming environment provides a space where they can take a deep breath & receive staff support. Libby Booth needs a part time employee to help staff this Wellness Center with an estimated cost of $20,000 per school year. It is our goal to fulfill that monetary need for the 2023-2024 school year with this challenge. Funds raised will contribute to the employee’s pay & support the Wellness Center.

More about the Wellness Center: The Wellness Center was overhauled last school year through the vision of Libby Booth’s Assistant Principal, Kellie Oliver. She saw the need to incorporate sensory stations to help students regulate difficult emotions. The Wellness Center is mainly funded through private donations. WCSD was able to secure a grant to fund a part time employee for the 2022-2023 school year, but those funds are temporary.

More about Communities In SchoolsThe mission of Communities In Schools of Western Nevada is to surround students with a community of support inside our schools. Our site coordinators work to create an equitable path to education by breaking through barriers and doing whatever it takes for our students.
