University Libraries’ Indigenous Nations Library Program is collaborating with the First Nations Community HealthSource (FNCH) to provide community assistance to Albuquerque’s vulnerable homeless populations. Donated items will go to assist their Homeless Outreach Program and the HIV Prevention Program.  

During these cold winter months, FNCH distributes gently used and clean clothing to children and adults. The group also requests items such as backpacks, pants, shirts, sweaters, coats, gloves, hats, socks, underwear and non-perishable food items are also welcome.

Donation collections points will be in place from Oct. 8 to Nov. 19 at the following campus locations:

  • Parish Memorial Library
  • Centennial Science and Engineering Library
  • Fine Arts and Design Library
  • Zimmerman Library
  • Indigenous Nations Library Program, Zimmerman Library
