The BLM Carson City District surprised Mineral County resident Greg Jacobs of the Hawthorne Army Depot by giving a generous donation of school supplies after the employees held a school supply drive.

Jacobs took the time out of his busy schedule to donate the items to CAHS, where they were handed out to appreciative children on their first day back to school.

It should be noted that Mineral County is the poorest county in the State of Nevada with 13 percent of the population below the poverty line. The national level is 11.5 percent.

The employees and teams, who donated items, collected 286 items. The most donated items were backpacks, composition books, and pencil boxes. Items that every student needs to start their first day back to school.
