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 from Rancho High School in Las Vegas who needed support over the Christmas break. Since then, Project 150 has grown and now serves more than 6,800 homeless, displaced, and disadvantaged enrolled and unenrolled high school students at more than 75 schools across Nevada. Project 150 provides these students with food, clothing, school supplies, sports equipment, shoes, scholarships, workforce preparation, and other needs so they can pursue their studies and succeed in life.
