PORTALES—In a cooperative effort between the Campus Bookstore at Eastern New Mexico University and the Portales Kiwanis, with a $1,000 donation from the Clovis/Portales Elks Club BPOE #1244 , over $2,000 in school supplies will be donated to Portales public schools.
The supplies will be distributed to principals at Brown, Steiner, James, Lindsey, and Valencia elementary schools, and Portales Junior High. They, in turn, will distribute the supplies to those children who need it the most.
The supplies were purchased from the ENMU Bookstore and Portales Wal-Mart. Donations were from private individuals, Portales Kiwanis members and Jerry Treadway, sales representative for the R. C. Taylor Company of Lubbock, Texas.
Pictured at the ENMU Campus Bookstore on Friday with the school supplies were:
