The Los Alamos community set a record with donations totaling more than $6,500 for the JJAB  Annual School Supply Drive.  Financial donations were used to purchase supplies for 60 students in all LAPS schools, including our local elementary schools, Los Alamos Middle School, and Los Alamos High  School.

JJAB Resource Specialists worked with our client families, and community  organizations to identify student needs. Items provided for students included backpacks,  notebooks, graph paper, pens, pencils, markers, crayons, scissors, glue sticks,  headphones/earbuds, Clorox wipes, and more.
