About Project 150:
Project 150 is a non-profit charitable organization founded in December 2011 by two Nevada Natives, Don Purdue and Patrick Spargur, both graduates of Clark High School, who heard of and helped 150 homeless students at Rancho High School. Since then, Project 150 provides food, clothing, school supplies, sports equipment, shoes, and other special requests to over 1,500 homeless, displaced, and disadvantaged high school students. In January 2014, the SNHEP Youth Council transitioned under Project 150’s umbrella. The Project 150 Youth Council Leadership Program focuses in leadership training, mentoring, scholarship fundraising, and college, career, and workforce readiness. The Youth Council proudly continues the premiere SNHEP Scholarship Program Legacy under their new name, Project 150 Youth Council. Project 150’s goal is to collaborate with schools and community organizations to maximize resources and allow students to focus in achieving graduation. Project 150 currently serves over 1,500 homeless, displaced, and disadvantaged students at 34 high schools in Southern Nevada and one in Reno. www.project150.org
