Bulldogs’ Tradition of Giving Dates Back Decades

Albuquerque High students have been “adopting” families during the holidays for generations.

Albuquerque High class’s annual tradition of “adopting” families from their community during the holidays dates back to the 1960s.  Students in every class donate money, buy and wrap gifts, then host a holiday breakfast for their adopted families.  

On Dec. 4, the tradition continued, and for some struggling families it was a holiday celebration they wouldn’t have had otherwise.  

It’s a lesson about giving that impacts everyone involved.
