Leadership Albuquerque is sponsored by the Albuquerque Chamber of Commerce and is a group of 40 professionals from all levels and any industry with the desire to be more knowledgeable about our city and state and to become better equipped to take on more advanced leadership roles in the organizations and communities. Each “class” works with a non-profit during their term in Leadership Albuquerque and Locker # 505 was fortunate to have the class of 2019 select us.
They not only collected clothing for our students and volunteered to assist at Locker # 505, they surpassed their goal collecting enough resources to clothe 200 students by more than 80 students. They collected 3,894 articles of clothing and donated more than $300 worth of volunteer hours, not to mention donating more than $8,000 allowing us to clothe more than 280 students . A special thank you to Eve Wakeland, from Esparza Advertising and Denise Nava from Albuquerque Community Foundation for all their efforts is working with Locker # 505.
It is organizations such as Leadership Albuquerque and the Chamber of Commerce that make it possible for Locker #505 to continue to clothe students in Bernalillo County so they can attend school in comfort and with confidence. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for caring about the students.
