To help ensure families in need don’t go hungry, Project 150 will distribute meal boxes to help feed around 16,000 people in Southern Nevada during the holiday season.
The Las Vegas nonprofit that serves more than 6,300 homeless, disadvantaged, and displaced high school students will provide holiday meals boxes during Thanksgiving and Christmas to local students and families. Project 150 volunteers prepare and deliver all holidays meals.
To help purchase holiday meals, Project 150 is seeking donations. A single donation of just $25 will provide enough food to feed a family of four. All monetary donations will be matched.
“Imagine not knowing where your next meal will come from. It’s critical our students and families in need have meals during the holidays,” said Meli Pulido, executive director of Project 150. “This is a great way to feed it forward and ensure families don’t go hungry on Thanksgiving.”
Starting Nov. 14-15, Project 150 will prepare and deliver 8,000 Thanksgiving meal boxes to Clark County high schools. Each meal box feeds a family of four and contains a full Thanksgiving feast, including turkey, vegetables, stuffing, and dessert. Another 2,000 meals boxes will be distributed at Christmas.
Donations for the holiday meal program are being accepted through the end of the year. Visit www.project150.org to donate or send a check to Project 150, at 3600 N. Rancho Drive, Las Vegas, 89130.
Monetary donations of all levels are encouraged. Gift cards to grocery stores are also being accepted and can a be dropped off at Project 150.

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 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 6,300 registered and non-registered homeless, displaced and disadvantaged high school students in more than 80 schools in Nevada. Project 150 provides these students with food, clothing, school supplies, sports equipment, shoes, college scholarships, workforce readiness, and other needs so they can continue school and be successful in life.
