Local youth and seniors are continuing to work together to give back to the community.
It is all part of First Lady Elizabeth Keller’s mission to unite residents through her One Albuquerque Challenge.
As part of that project, volunteers from the Senior Corps and students were at the Barelas Community Center create cards and gifts for young patients at UNM Hospital.
“It’s both an exciting opportunity for them to engage in making them, and a gift that ripples out into the community as well,” said Elizabeth Keller.
This year’s challenge is “connecting youth and elders.”
