Albuquerque High continues Adopt-a-Child tradition

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Albuquerque students in need of some holiday cheer celebrated an early Christmas Thursday.

Teachers, counselors and nurses at six APS elementary schools selected 60 less fortunate students for the Adopt-A-Child event at Albuquerque High School.

It is a program where high school seniors fill classrooms with food and gifts for students in need.

“It’s been an amazing event for the children, the community, the kids, the seniors. They all get a feeling of community and they all get to give back in a generous spirit of the holidays,” said high school teacher, Eric Strauss.

AHS says this is one the most cherished traditions at the school.

It has been going on since the 60s.
