Nathan Adelson Hospice, the largest non-profit hospice in Nevada, is helping several area youths as they gear up to go back to school. The hospice's locations will serve as drop-off points through Aug. 24 for much-needed school supplies for students at Robert L. Taylor and Sunrise Acres elementary schools. "Nathan Adelson Hospice adopted these schools to help them with various in-classroom efforts and other activities," said Carole Fisher, president and chief executive officer of Nathan Adelson Hospice. "We are eager to assist the teachers and students with additional supplies as they head back to school." Among school supplies needed include: . Backpacks . Paper . Pencils . Crayons . Markers (washable) . Scissors . Erasers . Glue sticks . Tissue boxes . Colored pencils . Pocket folders . Rulers . Binders Items can be dropped off between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. at one of the following Nathan Adelson Hospice locations: 4141 Swenson St. off East Flamingo Road; and 3391 N. Buffalo Road near Buckskin Avenue. The donations will be delivered to the schools prior to the first day of classes on Aug. 29. Fisher said Nathan Adelson Hospice adopted Robert L. Taylor Elementary School in 2009 after a prominent school educator, Cliff Kehoe, became a patient at the hospice. He was a dedicated educator and supporter of high-risk students, and Fisher promised him that "his work would continue to flourish" even after his passing in April 2009. The Nathan Adelson Hospice team expanded their efforts to include Sunrise Acres Elementary School in 2010.
