For the fourth year in a row, the UNM Alumni Association will collect toilet paper for its annual “Roll for the Cause” to support the Ronald McDonald House (RMDH) as part of its weeklong Homecoming Community Service Project.  Providing service to more than 70 family members each month in their Albuquerque location, RMDH provides comfort, care and a home away from home for families whose children are in medical treatment.

Once again this year, with many Albuquerque Public Schools’ families in need of assistance, the UNM Alumni Association will also gather much-needed donations benefiting the APS Title I Homeless Project.  With nearly 7,000 homeless children and youth in the Albuquerque area, these donations make a tremendous difference in these students’ lives.  Donations should include travel-size toiletries such as shampoo, conditioner, hair brushes, soap, lotion, deodorant, toothbrushes and toothpaste.

The UNM Alumni Association will collect items at several locations across campus beginning Monday, Sept. 23 through Friday, Sept. 27.

• Anderson School of Management, West Wing, Second Floor and the Career Services Center, East Wing, 1st floor
