Project 150 received a helping hand from volunteers and partners to recreate a stylish new place where homeless and disadvantaged high school students can shop for clothes, shoes and accessories.
The non-profit organization's 'Betty's Boutique' was restocked with the latest fashions and redesigned with new sections for women and men. The $8,000 remodeling project added shelving, flooring and much more, according to a release. Teens can fill their carts with much-needed stylish clothes for free with a student ID.
HomeAid Southern Nevada, an organization which houses homeless individuals, volunteered more than 50 hours to help complete the project.
"It was a great experience to be part of this project, helping a close partner like Project 150 continue their mission to serve homeless and disadvantaged students here in Southern Nevada," said Nat Hodgson, HomeAid's executive director. "Everyone involved should be proud of the space that was created for students to have access to necessities like clothes and shoes."
In addition, numerous Project 150 community partners assisted with the renovations including Carpets N More, Nevada State Apartment Association, Brass 2 Copper Mechanical, Focus Framing, Chicago Painting & Drywall, Triple Five Group of Companies and Focus Electric.
Project 150 is located at 3600 North Rancho Drive. For more information and how to volunteer, visit www.project150.org.
