LAS VEGAS – The upcoming school year is filled with uncertainty. But thanks to local nonprofit Project 150, at least hundreds of local high school students won’t have to wonder where they’ll get the school clothes and supplies they need most.
Project 150 is kicking off the school year by hosting a free back-to-school teen shopping event at its Betty’s Boutique from Aug. 10 to 21. Any high school student with a valid high school student ID can shop for new clothes, shoes, school supplies and hygiene products in the boutique located at 3600 N. Rancho Drive.
The shelves have been stocked with stylish brands like Levi’s and Citizens of Humanity. Space is limited, so students must register at https://www.project150.org/events.
“We’re grateful for the continued support to help disadvantaged high school students in our community,” said Kelli Kristo, Project 150 executive director. “This is a critical time for them, and we must ensure they have the support that they need to start the school year – virtual or in-person – with confidence and with the supplies they need.”
Project 150 provides homeless, displaced and disadvantaged high school students with basic necessities. It is in constant need of donated clothing, shoes and heavy-duty backpacks, as well as school supplies, hygiene items and accessories.

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 6,000 registered and non-registered homeless, displaced and disadvantaged high school students in more than 75 schools throughout Nevada. Project 150 provides these students with food, clothing, school supplies, sports equipment, shoes, college and workforce readiness and other needs so they have what they need to continue school and be successful in life.
