NMS Properties’ Backpack to School Campaign 2012 Is a Huge Success!

It was all smiles on Thursday evening at LuXe@Broadway in Santa Monica, as students from local schools received  backpacks, calculators, binders, notebooks, pens, additional school supplies and Big Blue Bus passes courtesy of the NMS Properties Backpack to School Campaign 2012!

The property management and real estatement development company, along with major contributors including NMS’s business partners and friends, generously donated the supplies to students who attend Olympic High School and the Off Campus Learning Center. Residents of NMS-owned apartments for rent in Santa Monica and others members of the Santa Monica community also contributed to the effort.

Giddy students scooped up their brand-new school supplies in the historic Quonset Hut at LuXe@Broadway. A lively reception was held inside the property’s leasing office before the students arrived. At the reception, Olympic High School and OCLC Principal Janie Gates accepted, on behalf of the schools, a computer that was donated by Staples.
