The Division of Student Affairs and the BeKind UNM team are collecting new toys from now through Friday, Dec. 1 for Los Ojos de la Familia's annual holiday basket drive to help those in need.

Every year, Los Ojos de la Familia brings joy to over 300 families in the community by providing them with a holiday basket filled with food and toys. For several years, UNM has teamed up with this organization to collect toys to make the holidays a little brighter for families in New Mexico.

Los Ojos de la Familia is a grassroots movement that works to provide New Mexicans with educational development and quality of life assistance.

Toys can be donated at the following locations: 

  • UNM Career Services (UAEC 2nd Floor) 
  • UNM Student Affairs (Scholes Hall Room 229) 
  • UNM Children’s Campus (1210 University NE) 
  • Ethnic Centers Foyer (Mesa Vista Hall)

Time and monetary donations are also being accepted at Los Ojos de la Familia. For more information contact Student Affairs at 505-277-0952 or visit the Los Ojos de la Familia website.
