Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Monday, April 22 is Earth Day and residents here in the Valley took time to celebrate on Saturday.
It was part of the Festival of Communities and GREENFest at UNLV.
The event showed locals how to live a sustainable lifestyle and also celebrated the rich cultural diversity of our community.
Project 150 was part of Saturday's event as well. The organization held a clothing and food drive to help local homeless teens.
"Providing the basic needs of clothing, some people brought food today. The formal wear [they need] can carry on and they can use it for beyond prom, job interviews and graduations," said Meli Pulido, Project 150.
Earth Day is meant to bring attention to climate change and how it's impacting the world we live in.
