LOS ALAMOS JJAB NEWS
It is hard to believe that we are already midway through summer and approaching the start of a new school year. With the start of the school year comes one of JJAB’s favorite programs: our annual school supply drive.
For the past five years, JJAB has raised funds to provide Los Alamos Public School (LAPS) students and staff with school supplies such as backpacks, notebooks, calculators, pencils, binders, crayons, paper, and other academic supplies. Last year, with the support of individuals, local businesses, and organizations, JJAB was able to raise $4,800 and provide over 60 youth with much-needed supplies.
JJAB invites the Los Alamos community to join us once again in ensuring that every youth is equipped with the tools they need to not only succeed in school, but to find the joy in learning.
Your donations will be used to purchase supplies for students in LAPS elementary schools, middle school, and high school. JJAB Resource Specialists provide supplies to the clients in our programs and collaborate with LAPS counselors and local organizations to identify the needs of additional youth. JJAB then purchases the supplies finances allow and distributes them directly to students and schools.
There are two ways the community can donate to support this project:
- Donate through the JJAB website www.losalamosjjab.com
- Mail a check to Los Alamos JJAB, PO Box 4716, Los Alamos, NM 87547 (Make checks payable to the Los Alamos JJAB and note on the check “school supplies”) We ask that checks be received by 7/31/2021.
Questions? Contact JJAB at (505) 709-8125. All funds donated will go directly to purchasing the needed school supplies.
