Random of Acts of Kindness Week Helps Elementary School

February 19, 2015

In conjunction with UNM Main Campus, UNM West celebrated Random Acts of Kindness Week from February 9th - February 15th.  As part of the week long celebration UNN West, faculty, staff and students helped to raise over $100 for the Food Pantry Program at Colinas Del Norte Elementary School.  The school is currently raising money to purchase a large freezer for the program.

The UNM West community has rallied support for the nearby elementary school before. This past December,  25 new and gently used winter coats were donated to the school for distribution to students in need.  Though Random Acts of Kindness week has ended, the kindness does not have to stop.

UNM West is currently organizing a Book Drive to collect new and gently used children's books for kids in grades 1-5.  Donations can be dropped off in the collection bin of the UNM West Cafe or at the UNM West Front Desk. For more information on other ways you can get involved at Colinas Del Norte Elementary school please contact Amber Byrd at 505.896.3378 ext. 153.
