School days

Thank you, community of Los Alamos, for caring! Self Help’s school supply project reached many children both in Los Alamos and in surrounding school districts.

We thank the NNM/LA United Way, the Woman of the ELCA, Bethlehem Lutheran Church, Casa Mesita Thrift Store, REMAX, the Los Alamos Monitor, KRSN and Staples.

We also appreciate those who helped unpack, sort, and deliver the six pallets of supplies as well as the many people who stopped by with a check, backpacks and words of encouragement.

Volleyball game

Thank you to all the fans who showed up for the Green and Gold Volleyball Alumni Game Aug. 21.

We raised money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and the LAHS volleyball teams. It was a great turnout and everyone had a great time.

Thank you to Dan and Margie Sena of Baskin Robbins for the smoothie popsicles that the crowd enjoyed, to Coach Diana Stokes for the T-shirts thrown out and Taco Bell of Santa Fe for the Alumni T-shirts. Being the first year, it was a great outcome in fundraising and I hope everyone looks forward to it next year.

Thank you once again to everyone for your support.
