2019 Albuquerque Back to School – Backpack Giveaway

We held our Albuquerque Back to School – Backpack Giveaway at the Boys and Girls Clubs of Central New Mexico. The event was a hit! 1,000 kids walked away with a backpack stuffed with school supplies just in time for the 2019-2020 school year.

Special thank you to all who attended and helped make this back to school event happen!!
