Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Help is on the way for local homeless teens.
Bishop Gorman High School sophomore Erica Korbel launched an end-of-the-year school supply drive this year.
She collected enough supplies to fill three car loads.
The loads were dropped off at Nevada Partnership for Homeless Youth.
"It makes you feel really good. It makes be feel better about myself, able to get school supplies to help people, organize it and collect for people that don't have all the things we do," said Korbel.
Nevada Partnership for Homeless Youth reaches out to thousands of homeless youth each year, including the estimated 6,000 enrolled in the Clark County School District.
