Back to school with the Gonzales family giveaway


Copyright © 2021 Roswell Daily Record

Cameron Kanoho accepts a Spiderman backpack filled with school supplies from Mary Gonzales after answering a biblical-themed trivia question at the Johnny Gonzales school supply giveaway. Reverand Jim Ridgway stands next to Gonzales. Kanoho, 8, attends Del Norte Elementary School and said the giveaway was, “The best thing I have experience in my life.” His mother Michelle Gonzalez said the event gave her hope for her family (two boys, one girl, and a baby on the way) and a renewed belief in the kindness of people. Kanoho’s little sister Michelle Rose Gonzales, 2, in the red dress stands nearby as other children gather around to potentially win backpacks. As hundreds gathered at Cahoon Park, the Gonzales family and volunteers passed out school supplies, pizza and canned goods. Churches donated food and desserts and Anthony Garza from Walgreens South handed out drinks and donated supplies for the giveaway. (Alison Penn Photo)
