Nick Carter Helps Vegas Community 'Prep For School'

Mon, Aug 6, 2018 at 7:00 PM by User

It’s that time of year again! Social media is filled with kids going back to school, ready to learn and excited for new experiences. Essential to these new experiences are basic supplies like pencils and paper and a fully stocked classroom to provide a rich learning environment for a child’s successful future.


With a 2 year old of his own now, it has has become increasingly important to Nick Carter to give back to the community, especially when it comes to children. So, it was no surprise that he and wife Lauren actively joined Foodie Fit, Han-Schneider International Children’s Foundation, and Richard Harris Law Firm to make sure that Las Vegas school, Robert E. Lake Elementary School, was “Prepped For School”. This campaign raised over $30,000.


So where does the money go? Individual boxes are packed with essential supplies that will be given to teachers to share with students who need them, averaging around $30 per box.


With a project so close to Nick’s heart, it’s not surprising that he, Lauren and even Odin showed up to help out last week, packing the boxes with supplies and stuffing over 900 backpacks to be delivered to the school next week.


“I’ve never been more welcome in my entire life by a community and I’ve never been so happy to be a part of a community. This is the beginning of something special and I hope we can continue this and grow this,” Nick said in a speech to the other volunteers who had showed up to pack supplies as well, expressing his desire to do more and encouraging others to stay involved.


Be sure to follow Nick and Foodie Fit on social media channels or visit Han-Scheider International Children’s Foundation to find out more ways to get involved.

    Dear Nick,

    My son goes to Robert E. Lake Elementary and I also volunteer at the school a few hours every day. I just wanted to say thank you, to you and the Backstreet Boys, along with the other sponsors for the backpack and school supplies. My son really loves the fidget spinner.

    Thanks,
    Melissa Ruiz

    Firstly, wanted to reply to a previous comment on here: Debbie! You have a big heart, as well! Thank you for all you do. We need more of people like you doing good and inspiring people to help each other.

    And back to Nick. Wish media would wrote more about stuff like this. Nick and Lauren definitely have big hearts and they inspire people to do good. And this is important!
    But, at least, this is for everyone to read on Fanclub, so.... Thank you, Nick and Lauren! I really appreciate this!
