Altrusa International of Roswell, NM, Inc. help local school children kick-off the school year with new school supplies! In partnership with WalMart, Altrusa held a school supply drive on July 13th. Thanks to the overwhelming response of donors that day, Altrusa was able to fill 70 backpacks with school supplies. Missouri Avenue Elementary School and Valley View Elementary School received 35 backpacks each. Members of Altrusa also delivered new school supplies to schools in Dexter, Hagerman and Lake Arthur. This is the third year that Altrusa has collected school supplies and backpacks for school children in Chaves County.
