With donations quadrupling since the first year, more than 8,000 pairs of socks were donated to Project 150 on November 20. In addition, Wynn Las Vegas donated one dollar per pair collected and presented Project 150 with a check for $8,254.
There are more than 3,300 registered homeless, displaced and disadvantaged high school students in Clark County. Project 150 helps these students stay in school by providing clothing, food, hygiene items and school supplies.
