As local affiliate of a national organization, we participate in some awesome national-scale events! October 20th – 29th we will be celebrating Family Promise Week!
Family Promise Friday – October 20th, 10 AM, Family Promise of ABQ Day Center 808 Edith Blvd. NE. 87102
First, we are kicking things off with our second Family Promise Friday, a quarterly event where we invite the community to our day center to meet with our director and enjoy some Starbucks coffee & pastries! While you’re here, we’ll be giving tours of our day center, answering questions about our programs, and all attendees will be entered to win a Family Promise giveaway!
Last Friday we were able to give away this Family Promise water bottle, travel mug and a Starbucks gift card to one of our attendees! This quarter, we will also be announcing more info about our 2017 Family Promise week events!
Fall Festival, October 22nd, 2-6 pm, AL Post 99 540 Louisiana Blvd NE. 87108
This year we are hosting a Fall Festival. We are so excited to be offering this completely free event to the Albuquerque community! We will be having trunk-or-treat, prizes, games, a costume contest, and activities for the kids. Facepainterina is donating her time and talents to provide free face-painting for event attendees. Another great way to get involved is to come volunteer at this event. Because this is a free community event, we want to see people from the community helping out! If you have a service you can provide, a car you want to decorate for Trunk-or-treat, or just want to help out, give us a call or email today!
Clergy Breakfast, October 25th, 7:30 AM, Family Promise of ABQ Day Center 808 Edith Blvd. NE. 87102
We will be hosting a Clergy breakfast on Wednesday to thank the clergy of all the churches who currently partner with Family Promise of Albuquerque as well as clergy around Albuquerque who may want to learn more about our programs. We will be having free breakfast and coffee.
18th Annual Fall Festival at Hinkle Family Fun Center, October 28th 11 – 2 pm.
Family Promise of Albuquerque will have a booth at the 18th annual Fall Festival at Hinkle! If you bring kids in costume, they will get in free. This is a free, fun trick-or-treating event. Come by and say hi!
B2B – Giving back sunday, October 29th from 12-9 pm, 3118 Central Ave. SE Nob Hill
Lastly, we will be wrapping up the week with an easy way for you to give back. Dine at B2B on the final day of Family Promise week, and up to 25% of B2B’s food sales will be donated to Family Promise of Albuquerque, helping us provide vital services to the families of Albuquerque who are experiencing homelessness. All you have to do is enjoy a meal at B2B, and they will take care of the rest! Since we will have a table at the restaurant that day, so don’t forget to say hello!
We do have an event the following week, An Evening of Promise, on Friday, November 3rd. Tickets are limited, so don’t forget to purchase yours! Come enjoy dinner, dancing featuring live music by The Kipsies, and a silent auction as we kick off the holiday season!
