Lee Canyon Launches Spread the Warmth Winter Coat Drive Benefitting Project 150, Saturday, Nov. 3 – Saturday, Nov. 17

Lee Canyon, Southern Nevada’s premier winter and summer outdoor adventure destination and a POWDR company, launches Spread the Warmth, a winter coat drive benefitting Project 150, a local nonprofit that assists over 6,000 disadvantaged high school students in the Clark County School District. The drive kicks off on Saturday, Nov. 3 at the Pray for Snow party at Skye Canyon Park. Those planning on attending the Pray for Snow party can drop-off their donation during the event.

Additionally, donation bins will be stationed at Lee Canyon partner locations throughout the Las Vegas Valley through Saturday, Nov. 17. Items needed include new and gently-used coats, jackets, and zip-up hooded sweaters in adult male and female sizes. To further support efforts, Skye Canyon will match $25 for each item donated up to $5,000.

“Whether taking to the slopes or the classroom it’s all about being prepared, and that means the right clothing to stay warm,” said Jim Seely, Lee Canyon’s marketing director. “Our partners were quick to jump on board and support Project 150. We encourage the community to get into the spirit of giving by cleaning out their closets and donating a gently used coat, or a new one, to a teen in need.”

The donation will be presented to Project 150 on Giving Tuesday, Nov. 27 at Skye Canyon Park.
