Southwest Medical has been part of the Las Vegas community for 45 years, and its em-ployees have averaged over 13,000 volunteer hours each year for the past three years. Southwest Medical also provides board representation for over 40 nonprofit organiza-tions across southern Nevada, including Project 150.
At Southwest Medical we believe it’s very important to give back to the community which we work. Hundreds of our team members work in support of our troops, our school kids, our hungry, and all of our underserved. We have a great program with the Vegas Golden Knights where we’re donating $10 for every puck saved by a Vegas Golden Knights goalie. We are committing up to $15,000 for this year alone.
Project 150 started December of 2011 with the mission to help 150 homeless high school students at Rancho High School. The founders, Don Purdue and Patrick Spargur, quickly learned that there were more homeless high school students through-out the valley. We now serve 58 schools here in Clark County and 20 in Reno, totally over 5,000 students whom we serve. We provide the necessities to help them succeed in high school without focusing on where they are going to sleep at night or what they’re going to eat next.
I’m proud to be on the board of Project 150 as I’ve seen firsthand the great work this or-ganization has done in our community and especially for our homeless youth. I hope you will lend your financial support also.
A hundred percent of your donations help Project 150 meet the needs of more than 5,000 students who are homeless in our community by providing them food, clothing, school supplies, hygiene products, and scholarships. We ask you to please consider fol-lowing suit as our partners of Southwest Medical and continue to support us and spon-sor us by following us at Project150.org.
