Huge THANK YOU going out to all the wonderful volunteers that came out to help at this year’s Backpack Assembly Party!
Together, we put together and distributed 619 backpacks.  During the week, we got requests for a few more backpacks for a final count this year of 638!

Special thanks goes to Walgreens, Chick-fil-A on San Mateo and Montgomery, Thrivent Financial Services,  Target, Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary church, Route 66 Civitans, Henry Schein Dental, Firehouse Subs,  Korean Methodist Church, Walmart and the many individual donors who made this year’s event possible.

This year we distributed bags to kids in Albuquerque, Rio Rancho, Los Lunas, Gallup, Mountainair, Roswell, Cuba and Shiprock in schools, homeless shelters and a domestic violence shelter.

Each and everyone one of you are fantastic and a blessing to families all over New Mexico!
