Richard Harris Law Firm
Thousands of school children go without backpacks and the essential supplies they need to succeed in school. Wanting to make a difference in Nevada, Richard Harris set out on a mission to get backpacks and school supplies into the hands of some of the neediest schools through his Project Backpack initiative. Through the generous support of local volunteers and the attorneys and staff of Richard Harris Law Firm, Project Backpack will once again have a strong launch at the start of this fall’s school year. This will mark our 3rd official year of Project Backpack, and by the end of it, we will have donated over 36,000 backpacks full of supplies to Nevada school kids.
