Service...Erin Mendez

What could be more positive than seeing one of Santo Nino's students serving the community! The following note is from Erin's mother to Ms. Martinez:

Good morning Ms. Martinez

This is for Erin’s service hours;

Made 35 fleece scarves

Donated 6 bags of winter clothes sweaters jackets pants backpacks

Toiletries 25 bottles mouth wash

90 toothbrushes

52 pairs socks (new)

40 pairs of gloves (new)

10 knit hats (new)

25 care packages; toothpaste shampoo bar soap comb

10 fleece blankets (new)

6 boxes toothpaste

10 deodorants

Box of 12 dry soups

2 boxes ceral

6 canned foods

6 pairs of tennis shoes and boots gently used

She took them to the Youth shelter yesterday and they posted an article on their facebook page of Erin, they were very surprised and excited for all Erin had donated and the scarves that she made. They named Erin a Community Life Saver.

Erin had an idea to now make fleece pillow cases for the shelter and continue to make scarves.

Erin has also continued to collect items and make blankets for the Santa Fe Animal Shelter.

How amazing is this??? See the pictures below from the Facebook post.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to come see me at any time. If my office is open, I am usually in there or running around the school. You can also usually find me early in the morning at drop-off or at pick-up in the afternoon. If all that fails, just email me at or set up an appointment with Christine.

I always love hearing good things, but I also want to hear your concerns.
