Having the right school supplies, clothing, and hygiene items can make a big difference for homeless, displaced, and disadvantaged high school students who are currently struggling as they pursue their education. Research shows that students with the appropriate school supplies can improve grades, creativity, attitude towards learning, behavior, and self-image – increasing their chances for success at school.
To help meet the need of Clark County high school students who were preparing for the 2021-2022 school year, Southern Highlands partnered with non-profit Project 150 on a Back-To-School Collection Drive for new school supplies and full-sized hygiene items.
The generosity of the community really shined through as school supplies, hygiene products, personal items and cash donations totaling more than $1,100 were secured and dropped off at either the OMS office or at Perk Up Coffee Shop.
All collected items went to Project 150’s Betty’s Boutique. Eligible high school students were then able to shop for their free items.
With a mission to provide support and services to homeless, displaced, and disadvantaged high school students so they can remain in school, graduate, and build bright futures, Project 150 has been serving Nevada students in need since 2011.
