PROJECT 150 to Provide 3,000 Holiday Meals for Local Homeless High School Students

PROJECT 150 to Provide 3,000 Holiday Meals for Local Homeless High School Students
When the holidays come, most high school students celebrate a break from books and teachers. But for some 2,500 Clark County School District (CCSD) high school students who are homeless, displaced or disadvantaged, it is a time of stress because school is often the only place they have to find their next meal. 

Project 150 Holiday Meal Boxes – Sponsor A Meal for $25

In response, Project 150 is working to provide at least 1,500 local high school students and their families have a Thanksgiving meal. Project 150 relies on community support to provide the meals, which cost about $25 and feeds a family of four. Deliveries will be made to each of the 51 CCSD high schools Project 150 serves. The local nonprofit provides these high school students with basic necessities throughout the year.

This year, Project 150 is partnering with Three Square Food Bank to receive donations from Albertson’s Grocery Stores through their “Turkey Bucks” program, which allows shoppers to donate money for the holiday meals and #FeedItForward through Dec. 21. In addition, Landsberg Orora will once again provide packaging supplies to box the holiday meals. Landsberg has been a premier packaging supplier since 1947.

“Three Square is very proud of our long-standing relationship with both Project 150 and Albertsons, in our collective effort to provide meals for those in need throughout Southern Nevada,” said Brian Burton, President and CEO of Three Square Food Bank. “These meals, as well as the support and kindness shown in sharing them by our partners, are certain to brighten the holiday season for many young people in our community.”

Project 150 will repeat this effort and deliver meals to high schools in December for the Christmas holiday. To contribute and join the effort to #FeedItForward, contact Project 150 at (702) 721-7150 or visit the website, www.project150.org. Follow Project 150 on Facebook and Twitter.
