Coronado Students Support APS Community Clothing Bank

The Student Council collected more than 150 packages of new underwear and socks and also donated $100.

The Coronado Elementary School Student Council sponsored a clothing drive to support the APS Community Clothing Bank. They made daily announcements, hung posters and even sponsored a smoothie party. "They really went all out," said Coronado Principal Anna Marie Ulibarri.

As a result, they were able to collect 152 packages of new socks and underwear for students in need. They also donated $100 to support the Clothing Bank, now managed by Albuquerque Public Schools.

"We talk about service for others and the kids get this," Ulibarri said. "If there's a need, they want to help."
