LAS VEGAS – To help ensure homeless, displaced, and disadvantaged high school students don’t go hungry and have an enjoyable Thanksgiving, Project 150 will distribute holiday meal boxes to help feed approximately 16,000 people in Southern Nevada in celebration of Thanksgiving.
The Las Vegas nonprofit that serves more than 6,300 homeless, disadvantaged, and displaced high school students will provide holiday meals boxes during Thanksgiving to local students and their families. Project 150 volunteers pack and deliver all holidays meals.
“It’s critical our students and their families have meals during the holidays. The need is great and this way we can make Thanksgiving brighter for our students and their families,” said Kelli Kristo, executive director of Project 150. “This is a great way to pay it forward and ensure families don’t go hungry on Thanksgiving.”
You can help support the Holiday Meal Program with a contribution of just $25 which will provide a meal that feeds a family of four.
Starting Nov. 18-20, Project 150 will pack 2,000 Thanksgiving meal boxes; the boxes will be delivered to Clark County high schools on Nov. 21. 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.
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.
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.

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.
