UNM West community helps out school in need

March 6, 2014

UNM West would like to thank all of our students, faculty and staff who participated in our Random Acts of Kindness Week!  Thanks to your generous donations we were able to raise $200 for the Colinas del Norte Elementary Food Backpack Program.  Every week the school sends students in need home with food.  The UNM West community's contribution purchased the wagon of food pictured below.

In addition several UNM West students walked away with Pizza 9 gift certificates and Harlem Globetrotters tickets as part of the Random Acts of Kindness campaign. Thanks again to Pizza 9 and the Santa Ana Star Center for their gifts!  We’re sure our lucky students enjoyed them!

The kindness doesn't have to end.  If you would like to volunteer at the Colinas Del Norte Elementary Backpack Program you may call Amber Byrd at (505) 896-3378.
