‘Spread The Warmth’, Rotary Interact Club’s Food & Clothing Drive Set For Saturday, Dec. 3


During this season of giving, the Los Alamos High School Rotary Interact Club, a student-led group dedicated to service, will be hosting a community-wide food and winter clothing donation drive! All food and clothing received will be distributed to various charities that aim to assist the homeless and refugee population in New Mexico. One in every six people and one in every four children in New Mexico suffer from food insecurity. Furthermore, with the coming winter and with temperatures dropping, the LAHS Rotary Interact Club is thrilled to see the community’s engagement in the event to “Spread the Warmth” this festive season. 

The club will be accepting donations from 2 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, December 3rd, at Zia Credit Union, 1001 Central Avenue. The Interact Club will also be selling baked goods and hot chocolate, particularly during the Light Parade, starting at 6 p.m., to raise money for The Food Depot, a Northern New Mexico-based organization that aims to feed the hungry. 

Thank you so much for your generosity! If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact yunseo.kim@studentlaschools.net
