Help make our annual Sun Safety Event a success!
We need sunscreen, hats with brims, bandanas, water bottles, sunglasses and lip balm!
On Thursday, June 25, in collaboration with the University of New Mexico’s medical students program, we are sponsoring a Sun Safety Event from 9:30 – 11:30 a.m. We are accepting donations up to Tuesday, June 23.
The homeless and people with extremely low-incomes are coming to learn about the importance of sun safety. Heatstroke, dehydration, and heat exhaustion are serious problems for the people we serve. They often have nowhere to go to get out of the sun or have the ability to cool off their homes to a livable degree.
Be assured, we will give away any of the above items that you donate and they will be very much appreciated. Your donation is tax-deductible as St. Luke’s is a 5o1(C)3 non-profit corporation.
Please drop off your donations – Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. at the clinic (the building to the right of El Caldito Soup Kitchen).
We are located on the Community of Hope campus at 999 W. Amador Ave.
