    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.
