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

“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.

  • Art Along the Rio Grande: Experience Nature Through the Artists' Lens is a visual exploration of the ecological and cultural richness of the South Valley’s Valle de Oro Wildlife Refuge. The exhibit is a joint project of the Refuge, Gutiérrez Hubbell House, Friends of Valle de Oro, Hubbell House Alliance, and Bernalillo County Public Art. Valle de Oro National Wildlife Refuge is the Southwest’s first urban refuge, located in the South Valley, just a few miles south of downtown Albuquerque. The refuge is in the process of restoring a former dairy farm back to a mosaic of native New Mexico habitats in order to provide an oasis for wildlife as well as an abundance of education and recreation opportunities for the community. The exhibit showcases the work of local artists in diverse mediums. For the past 7 years, photographers of all ages and skill levels have been invited to participate in an annual photo contest hosted by the refuge, to capture images of the refuge's wildlife, landscapes and people. This exhibit will feature the winning images from the 2019 photo contest, highlighting the refuge this past year as it begins restoration. Sketches and images from the Fall 2019 field mural project featuring 5 women muralists will be on display at GHH. The murals can still be seen at the Refuge, while sketches, photos, and other works reflect the goals and processes of the artists. Artwork by local Artist Wren Walraven, will also be featured. Wren’s artwork content comes from her personal experiences with wildlife, her passion for those animals and the magical desert scenery. Join us in this celebration of the South Valley’s environmental beauty, creativity, and community connections.
