WE DID IT!
We collected and donated 1,149 pounds! Way to go, PAPA!
Thank you to everyone who donated to help our community.
Each October for the past 5 years, Public Academy for Performing Arts’ International Thespian Troupe #6667 has held a food drive called TOTS-EAT (Trick or Treat so Kids Can Eat) as part of a national campaign led by The Education Theatre Association.
We are proud of how the PAPA community supports this food drive each October. This year, we collected more food than ever before. Thank you to everyone who donated! All donations are given to The Storehouse of New Mexico, which supports families in need.
Please keep The Storehouse in mind during the holiday season. The Storehouse will be collecting more non-perishable food on November 23-25th at San Mateo & Montgomery in the Albertson’s
Parking Lot. Please visist www.thestorehouseABQ.org for more details.
