Gift tag drive benefits local children and seniors
Each year, Lab employees and contractors work to make the holidays brighter for local children and seniors through its Holiday Gift Tag drive.
Individuals identified through regional nonprofit social-welfare organizations indicate what presents might make their holidays happier, and that information is transcribed onto gift tags. Those tags, in turn, are distributed to groups and individuals within the Lab who want to make those gift wishes come true.
While requests to participate in the program are still coming in, it is already expected that more than 850 presents will be distributed this year.
Some of the organizations partnering for the drive include the State of New Mexico’s Children, Youth and Families Department, Boys and Girls Club Del Norte, Wings for Hope, and the Espanola Valley Toy Run.
For more information on the drive, contact Ed Vigil with the Lab’s Community Programs Office at (505) 665-4400 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
