Spring is just around the corner and with that comes spring cleaning of closets, garages, and other places where “stuff” accumulates. Bosque School’s Community Activists for Food Security (CAFS), an upper school Service Learning group, invites you to donate new and gently-used functional carry-on bags, small roller-suitcases, tote bags and duffle bags to support our community members. Donated items will go directly to clients of The Storehouse, Albuquerque’s largest food pantry in the eastside of town. At The Storehouse, clients pick-up food, hygiene kits, pet food, clothing and other essential items. However, when they arrive, they often don’t have proper bags for carrying. This can also slow down systems when The Storehouse is serving hundreds of clients on any given day.
The CAFS luggage drive will run Feb 10–14. Please drop off your items at Dolores’ desk in the Schoolhouse or Elaine’s desk in the Middle School office. Bins will be placed around campus for students to deliver donated items as well.
Thank you for supporting CAFS and members of our general community!
