Back to school is an exciting time of year for students and parents, but this fall, school may look a little different as districts across the country determine the safest way to educate children during a pandemic.

Sandia has a long-standing tradition of collecting school supplies for the Albuquerque Public Schools Clothing Bank and School Supply Barn, and this year is no different. The school supply drive will be all virtual. Instead of supplies, employees can make a monetary donation to the APS Education Foundation so the district can purchase needed supplies, which this year may include cleaning supplies and masks for students in addition to the usual pencils, paper and crayons.

Visit the Donation Drives page on Sandia’s internal Community Involvement website or contact Katrina Wagner for more information.
