Project 150

The mission committee is sponsoring the collection of items for this local program.  Project 150 is a completely volunteer run organization that provides clothing, shoes, toiletries, etc. to needy high school kids. The program works with truancy officers, Child Protective Services, Big Brothers and Sisters, Awaken, foster kids, and others who work with students and are aware of teens that need help with clothing, toiletries, etc. Students can "shop" at the store located near Reno High (and there is a store in Sparks too) by simply showing their high school ID. They can shop once every three months. We are supporting this worthy local mission by collecting the following items in January. Thank you!!
  • FULL SIZE bottles of Body Wash and Body Lotion
  • Chapstick
  • Stocking Caps (Grey or Black only please)
  • Winter Gloves (Grey or Black only please)
  • Men's MEDIUM boxer briefs
  • 12.5 sized athletic shoes for MEN
  • ALL sizes XS-4X long sleeved SHIRTS for MEN and WOMEN (Grey or black pullovers preferred)

Drivers Needed

The Sanford Center for Aging, which is funded by Nevada Aging and Disability Services, needs volunteers to drive people age 60 and over to appointments, errands and social activities.

Drivers receive mileage reimbursement and can register for flexible hours. It is an opportunity to build friendships and do a service within the community. Auto liability and secondary insurance are included.

Further information can be obtained by emailing sanford@unr.edu or by calling (775) 784-1807.

A flyer is posted on the Mission Board located in Martin Hall. One of our church attendees has found the service to be very reliable and of great help in meeting her needs.
