The Assistance League of Las Vegas recently received a check from Findlay Automotive Group for $5,000 to help meet clothing needs for schoolchildren. Findlay Automotive Group Chief Financial Officer Tyler Corder delivered the check Dec. 4 to the chapter’s offices at 6446 W. Charleston Blvd.

“We didn’t realize what need there was, and also didn’t know what Assistance League of Las Vegas did,” Corder said. “Once we were able to visit and see the various programs that they provide, we realized what a great organization it is. We’re really proud to be able to help them fund Operation School Bell. We will look for future opportunities to support them.”

Carroll Mueller of Assistance League said the group has helped more than 8,300 children per year the last three years for Operation School Bell. All programs of Assistance League of Las Vegas impacted more than 48,000 children last year.

The Clark County School District determines which children need help. The school district then brings them to the facility to select their new items.

Carroll stated, “We are so grateful for this gift from Findlay Automotive Group as it will clothe 72 students. These children are thrilled also. You can be assured that all donations are returned to meet needs in this community as we have no paid staff.”
