Project 150, a local nonprofit that provides these students with such items, will hold a Free Teen Shopping Day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 20 at Betty’s Boutique in the Brady Caipa Volunteer Center, 3600 N. Rancho Drive.
Any student with a high school ID can shop for new and gently used clothing, shoes, accessories and school supplies. Betty’s Boutique is open throughout the school year.
“The Las Vegas community is always so supportive,” said Meli Pulido, executive director of Project 150. “And we’re pleased to offer our students the latest fashion in men and ladies clothing so they can start the school year with confidence and with the essential items they need for school.”
Project 150 is in constant need of volunteers to process donations and assist student shoppers in Betty’s Boutique. The charity serves more than 2,500 homeless, displaced and disadvantaged high school students in 47 high schools throughout Clark County, plus additional schools in Northern Nevada.

About Project 150
Project 150 is a 501(c)3 nonprofit charitable organization, founded in December 2011 by local businessmen Don Purdue and Patrick Spargur. The two had heard about 150 homeless high school students at Rancho High School in Las Vegas who were in need of support over the Christmas break. Since that time, Project 150 has expanded and now serves more than 2,500 homeless, displaced and disadvantaged high school students in 47 schools throughout Clark County. Project 150 provides these students with food, clothing, school supplies, sports equipment, shoes and other needs so they have what they need to continue school and be successful in life.
