PARTNER RECOGINTION

GGAB recognizes the contributions made from our generous partners at Walmart. Customer Service Manager, Debra Hernandez, at Store #5675 was an integral part of the Colors of The World Crayola Crayon Campaign for the month of May.

THANK YOU!



COLORS OF THE WORLD CAMPAIGN

Together with A World of Difference and Walmart.org, GGAB distributed the Colors of The World Crayola Crayons to community outreach programs, schools, and fellow nonprofits throughout Albuquerque and the Northern New Mexico Pueblos.

GGAB Ambassador, Mercedes, from Houston, TX, assisted in the distribution of Colors of The World Crayola Campaign in Albuquerque, NM. Every student also received a new quality book with their Crayola crayons.

READING WITH SHEPHERD DAISY

The Reading with Shepherd Daisy program encourages children to read with their pets for just 15 minutes a day. That 15 minutes a day can enhance the confidence of young readers and encourage a love of reading. The Reading With Shepherd Daisy event held in March was a great example of what is possible when the community comes together to support our youth!


TEAMING UP WITH ABQ READS

GGAB is thrilled to participate in the ABQ Reads Mentoring Program working with students and encouraging reading in our APS schools.

FEATURED TITLES

GGAB provides high-quality, award-winning books to Title 1 demographics.
