There is no excuse for abuse . . .
A big “THANK YOU” to PNM for the Safety Grant that was awarded to El Refugio, Inc.
Because of this grant El Refugio was able to purchase a total of 35 bikes for girls and boys, 2 women’s bikes, 29 helmets, 2 scooters, 2 trikes and 2 sets of training wheels. The children were thrilled, and this helped them focus on the joys of life. This grant allowed us to pay for 1 eye exam, 1 frame, plastic lenses and for 2 lens protectants. The child coordinator purchased a bundle of “Puppy Dog & Ice Cream” books. (Emotional Growth Books) Along with the books, thanksgiving activity books were purchased as well as a children’s Valentine Board kit. Thank you, PNM, for helping us put a smile on these precious individuals. The children rode their new bikes down our office hallways to show off their new bikes to staff. The women that received a bike use them to get to work.
Big shout out to PNM!!!!
