The Hunger Games, Divergent, and The Ruby Red book series, Kindle Paperwhite Kids for each student, Scribble Stones books, various flash cards, and HP G4 Computer Monitors worth $13,000, as well as a $15,000 check to support the school with additional needs, are among the items requested by the school.
Meals were also distributed to each family and instructor at the school.
“Gerlach K-12 School is proud to have partnered with Amazon for the past eight Holiday seasons,” said Stacey Black, Gerlach K-12 School, Assistant Principal & Teacher. “We believe that reading can fuel the fires of intelligence and imagination. Helping parents and children in their lifelong learning journey is an honor and a cause that is incredibly close to our hearts.”
