It is hard to believe that the summer is nearly over! As the weather starts to cool off and we head into the autumn months, JJAB will once again be holding our Winter Clothing Drive, where we purchase weather-appropriate clothing for youth in need.
JJAB is asking community members to make a financial donation that will be used to purchase winter clothing for students in all LAPS schools, including our local elementary schools, Los Alamos Middle School, Los Alamos High School, Los Alamos Online Learning Academy and Topper Virtual Academy. JJAB Resource Specialists will be working with our client families, school counselors, and community organizations to gather student needs. JJAB will then purchase, as finances allow, the desired items and deliver them directly to the students and schools. Items that are frequently needed by students and purchased through our Winter Clothing Drive include coats, snow boots, gloves, scarves, and hats.
Since this program’s inception in 2020, JJAB has served 205 youth in this program. We anticipate a large number of requests for winter clothing this year, given the fact that inflation has financially impacted many local families. JJAB’s goal this year is to raise at least $7,500 to purchase winter clothing for students in need.
