Swapping Skateboards and Collecting Clothes

The 300+ daily homeless guests at St. Martin’s Hospitality Center’s were the recipients of a HUGE donation of clothing & socks by everyone who came to the 3rd Annual Skate Swap and Charity Drive on July 29th at Rotary Park in Albuquerque.  "Kudos!" to Christopher Cade, organizer of this wonderful event, whose invitation to help people in need resulted in donations that literally jam packed my CRV!  Last week our clothing room was newly stocked with “primo quality” shirts, jeans, socks & underwear and many other donated items.  A warm “shout out!” to all participants for your generosity of spirit!  -Karen Navarro, Client Advocate at St. Martin’s Hospitality Center (843-9405, ext. 225)  See more photos from the event
