This Sunday, one youth from the Christian Church in Los Alamos is hoping you will donate some school supplies for those in need as the school year is about to begin.
Victoria Hypes is a Chamisa, LAMS and LAHS graduate attending Santa Fe Community College for a dual Associates’ in biology and engineering.
She has been active in the church since from a young age and was inspired last year to take on this fundraising challenge after being inspired by a Christ in Youth conference attended by the youth of the Church of Christ in California.
“I loved being able to make a difference so I decided to continue on the fundraiser,” Hypes said. “The event is Sunday, Aug. 2 after the service at Los Alamos Christian Church, usually about 11:30 a.m.”
Last year the project brought in $500 worth of donations given directly to Los Alamos Public Schools.
“If you can’t make the event, a check mailed to the church made out to LACC with ‘back-to-school fundraiser,’ in the subject line,” Hypes said.
The Christian Church is at 92 East Road and donations can also be left at the church office. The church can be contacted at 505.662.6468 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
