Lee Canyon’s Share the Warmth coat drive underway

Lee Canyon, Southern Nevada’s premier winter and summer outdoor adventure destination, launched Spread the Warmth, a winter coat drive benefiting Project 150, a local nonprofit that assists more than 6,000 disadvantaged high school students in the Clark County School District.

The drive kicked off Nov. 3 at the Pray for Snow party at Skye Canyon Park, but 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 the effort, 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 donations will be presented to Project 150 on Giving Tuesday, Nov. 27 at Skye Canyon Park.

Pending appropriate weather conditions, Lee Canyon will open for its 2018-19 winter season in early December and will be open daily from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. through the end of the season. Guests are encouraged to purchase lift and tubing tickets through the Lee Canyon website to take advantage of online discounts and to avoid sold-out dates.
