There are more than 2,500 homeless high school students in the Las Vegas Valley, many of whom don’t have basic necessities such as socks, underwear, shoes and clothing for the winter.
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.
