Aprendamos Intervention Team and the NMSU Men’s Basketball Team will be delivering shoes, books and school supplies to Arrey Elementary School on Friday, Aug. 29, 10 a.m.-12 p.m. This collaboration is part of the Second Annual Aprendamos Shoes & Books Drive.
On Aug. 29, Aprendamos will deliver shoes and books to several students. Each classroom will also receive school supplies for the students, and teachers will be given a box of supplies for their own use. The NMSU Men’s Basketball team will help Aprendamos deliver these item and will spend time in each classroom with the students.
In June, more than 200 children in the Hatch community signed up to receive a pair of new shoes and a book. On Aug. 1, more than 250 pairs of shoes, backpacks and books were delivered. The number of children in need of shoes exceeded the 2013 Aprendamos Shoes & Book Drive. Last year, about 210 pairs of shoes were delivered to children in the Hatch and Arrey communities.
Aprendamos is proud to continue their community success campaign, “Let’s Cultivate Giving & Harvest Success.” Aprendamos also looks forward to continuing the Shoes & Book Drive next year.
