BernCo Employees are in the Giving Spirit this Season

12/17/2019

Thanks to the generosity of many Bernalillo County employees, hundreds of Albuquerque Public Schools kids are receiving gifts this holiday season.

The gift giving began last week at Chelwood, Duranes, Eugene Field and Sierra Vista elementary schools. This week more gifts will be delivered to the following locations:

Tuesday, Dec. 17

  • 9:30 a.m. at Pajarito Elementary, 2701 Don Felipe SW
  • 11 a.m. at Rudolfo Anaya Elementary, 2800 Vermejo Park Dr. SW

Thursday, Dec. 19

  • Noon at Whitter Elementary, 1110 Quincy St. SE

“I want to thank our awesome Bernalillo County employees for once again opening their hearts and wallets to spread a little holiday cheer by shopping, wrapping and delivering personalized gifts to nearly 600 children in need,” says Bernalillo County Manager Julie Morgas Baca.

The children were selected from various ABC Community School affiliate schools in each County Commission district.

The ABC Community School Partnership is a coalition of local government, business and nonprofit leaders dedicated to helping students graduate ready for college, career and life.

An important book that changes what we thought we knew about the colonization of the New World, focusing on the enslavement of Native Americans in Latin and Central America and in the Indies, and into the 19th century especially in New Mexico and California. The presentation will be followed by small group discussions that engage participants in sharing their own experiences and perspectives and provoke deeper understanding.
