“I want to thank our awesome Bernalillo County employees for once again opening their hearts and wallets to spread a little holiday cheer by shopping, wrapping and delivering personalized gifts to nearly 600 children in need,” says Bernalillo County Manager Julie Morgas Baca.
The children were selected from various ABC Community School affiliate schools in each County Commission district.
