Project 150 currently serves more than 6,000 high school students in need. 3,300 registered homeless and 3,100 non-registered homeless, displaced and disadvantaged high school students at 58 high schools in Southern Nevada. Additionally Project 150 serves students in need at 20 high schools in Reno, NV. High School is Tough Enough without having to worry about where you are going to sleep at night. Project 150 was created out of our community’s desire to help these kids. Our mission is to offer support and services to these homeless high school students so they have what they need to continue school and be successful in life.
Project 150 collects teen appropriate gently used clothes, toiletries, non perishable food, and school supplies year round. Throughout the year we hold special drives for high school sports equipment, formal wear, blankets and other seasonal items as needed.
Project 150 collaborates with many organizations in our community who share our mission of providing basic needs to homeless, displaced and disadvantaged high school students.
Your business, organization, school, church, or other community group can make a big difference by hosting a drive and spreading the word!
Homeless, displaced and disadvantaged teens are in constant need of hygiene supplies, school supplies, clothing, food and bus passes. Bus tickets get these young people to job interviews, medical appointments, shelter, and other services. Every in kind donation helps us stretch the budget! Hosting a collection drive does more than help us provide these critical items to those in need, it raises awareness in the community!
How to Host a Drive…Spread the Word
Most people want to help: they just need to be asked. You can send emails, use postcards or flyers, or post to Facebook, Twitter and other social media. Bring up the drive at meetings and group gatherings. Host a party and ask guests to bring a donated item. Get Creative!
Make it Easy to Donate
Have a central location for people to drop off their items. Place drop boxes in several locations around your school or office. You can also collect items during a holiday party or office gathering. Monetary donations, including gift cards, are also a huge help!
Deliver Your Donations to the Project 150 Volunteer Center or any of our convenient drop off locations.
You can drop off your items at any of the donation drop off locations around Las Vegas. (See the map below.)
