Sirens Collection Drive for Homeless Students

The Albuquerque Metro Area public safety agencies have joined forces once again to host a Winter Collection Drive. Currently, there are over 5,000 APS homeless students in the metro area. The collection drive is from Nov. 17th-Dec. 3rd. You can drop off items at any fire or police station in the city and county along with several participating businesses.

These kids are living in cars, doubled up in homes or living on the street. Even while homeless, they are determined to attend school with the goal of graduating. In 2013, two hundred homeless students graduated high school. With your help, we can provide the essential items they need to be successful.
