What is a Plastic Food Drive?
The Plastic Food Drive is an annual fundraiser held by the Nevada Partnership For Homeless Youth. Our goal is to raise $25,000 so that we can feed hundreds of homeless teens for Thanksgiving and the holiday season.
How Can I Help?
In the past year, the number of homeless teens in our community in need of services has continued to grow. In order to help provide food for these youth, the Nevada Partnership for Homeless Youth (NPHY) is hosting our eighth annual Plastic Food Drive this holiday season and we need your help! Anyone can donate by either clicking this link and making a $5, $10, or $25 donation or you can drop off a prepaid fast food or grocery store gift card to the William Fry Drop-In Center. Additionally businesses, schools, groups and offices can participate by holding their own Plastic Food Drive and encouraging employees to contribute $5 fast food and/or $25 grocery store gift cards. Gift cards can be collected from now through Tuesday, November 25th, Click here to find out more about how you can help to ensure that no youth goes hungry this Thanksgiving.
To honor the single largest donation received, NPHY will engrave a brick with the donor or company's name to be permanently displayed at our Drop-In Center!
We are the only youth service provider in Nevada with a continuum of care extending from street outreach and 24-hour crisis intervention services to a full-time drop-in center and an independent living program. The William Fry Drop-In Center is located at 4981 Shirley Street - across from Thomas and Mack. The hours of operation are Monday - Friday, 9:00am - 6:00pm. Click here to visit our website.
