On December 15th, Southwest Youth Services’ Program Assistant, Shelby Flores-Thorpe, and AmeriCorps VISTA member, Adelina Gomez, organized and donated clothing from the former SYS Clothing Bank. Shelby and Adelina took the initiative to organize and distribute seven 30-gallon bags of clothing among five non-profits in Albuquerque. The Albuquerque Rescue Mission, the Albuquerque Indian Center, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Birthright of Albuquerque, and S.A.F.E House NM received clothing donations on behalf of Southwest Youth Services. Donations included baby, children, men's, and women's shirts, pants, jackets, and outerwear. This holiday season remember to give back to your community!
