Advancement provides happy holiday for PB&J, hospital

The UNM Advancement division collected items valued at more than $2,500 for Peanut Butter and Jelly (PB&J) Family Services of New Mexico and books for Children’s Hospital of New Mexico during its holiday “Spirit of Giving” drive recently.

The division presented a check for $1,000 from Moose Lodge 1517 to PB&J and various other items including a laminator donated by Belew’s Office Supply, a VCR and color TV, an aquarium donated from Clark’s Pet Emporium, glider chair and books from the UNM Bookstore and KNME’s ‘Ready to Learn’ Program. Other items included gloves and hats, art supplies, toys and much more.

Advancement donated literature for toddlers through adolescents to Children’s Hospital. These were divided and distributed to the Children’s Psychiatric Center, the “Para Los Ninos” clinic for sexually abused children, the “Los Pasos” clinic for single moms dealing with poverty and abuse, the SELECTT Program which serves young children from families coping with various issues including substance abuse and domestic violence, and the Child Life Program at UNMH for youngsters with medical challenges.

Judy Jones, vice president for Advancement, said she was grateful for the generosity of the employees of Advancement which includes Alumni Relations, Development, KNME TV, Public Affairs, and Marketing and Communications.
