About Project 150
Project 150 is a 501(c)3 non-profit 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 needed support during the Christmas break. Since then, Project 150 has expanded and now serves more than 6,000 registered and unregistered homeless, displaced and at-risk high school students in more than 75 schools across 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 their education and be successful in life.
