make-a-difference-day-9Make a Difference Day was a success! October 2014, we celebrated Make a Difference Day throughout the community by collecting children’s books for Title 1 schools. We collected over 1400 books which went to three Albuquerque schools. We held a celebration at our Thrift Shop where we hosted representatives from Emerson Elementary School, Valle Vista Elementary School, and Mt. View Elementary School.

make-a-difference-day-3Among the invited guests was Laurie Everhart who is both the Title I Director for Albuquerque Public Schools and one of our chapter’s advisors. Children who represented their schools chose an extra book and received a Halloween gift bag containing pencils, note pads, stickers, and crayons with a Halloween theme. After cookies, cider, and smiles, the children and representatives delivered the new books to their schools.
