As high school students go back to school, local charity Project 150 Reno aims to help those who are homeless, displaced or disadvantaged hit the ground running with a Free Teen Shopping Day from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 27, at Stanley Steemer, 740 Freeport Blvd., Ste 102, in Sparks.
During the event, any student with a high school ID can shop for free for new and gently used clothing, shoes, accessories and school supplies.
“We believe every high school student should start the year off well prepared with all the basics in hand,” Project 150 Reno Coordinator Sue Barry said. “As our motto goes, ‘High School Is Tough Enough.’ We know these students are doing everything possible to stay on course and they deserve all our support.”
This is Project 150 Reno’s second Free Teen Shopping Day. In September 2015, Project 150 Reno distributed over $18,000 in merchandise to more than 132 high school students. The nonprofit organization provides basic needs for more than 1,100 homeless, displaced and disadvantaged high school students throughout Washoe County.
