Homecoming Community Service Project

For the 4th year in a row, the UNM Alumni Association will collect toilet paper for its annual Roll for the Cause to support the Ronald McDonald House (RMDH) as part of its Homecoming Community Service Project. 

RMDH provides comfort, care and a home away from home for families whose children are in medical treatment.  They service over 70 family members each month in their Albuquerque location.

Also this year, with many Albuquerque Public Schools’ families in need of assistance, the UNM Alumni Association will gather much-needed donations benefiting the APS Title I Homeless Project. 

With nearly 7,000 homeless children and youth in the Albuquerque area, these donations make a tremendous difference in these students’ lives. 

Donations should include travel-size toiletries such as: shampoo, conditioner, hair brushes, soap, lotion, deodorant, toothbrushes and toothpaste.

The UNM Alumni Association will collect items at several locations across campus beginning Monday, September 23rd through Friday, September 27th.  

You can donate items in  boxes located in the Anderson Career Services Office and also at the front desk on the second floor of the west wing.
