Children who participate in the SELECTT Program, a UNM Department of Pediatrics program that assists families with children from birth to age three by providing medical, social, and early intervention services, are being listed on the Macys Giving Tree in Coronado Center.

The tree, which provides Macys shoppers with an opportunity to make the holidays special by purchasing a gift for a child, will be available from Friday, November 16th through Wednesday, December 19th.

Holiday Shoppers can help children in need this season at Macys Giving Tree located on the upper level in the shoe department at the mall entrance to the store. Children from five local programs benefit from the Macys Giving Tree.

Other programs that will be beneficiaries of the program include:
