Giving Tree at Macys Coronado Center

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:

Christina Kent Day Nursery provides high quality childcare, early education and nutritional services for children from low-income families.

La Mesa Early Childhood Center serves low income, multicultural families in the community with full-day, year round care for children from six weeks to three years of age.

Michaels Place is an inclusive childcare center for children from four weeks to four years of age that provides a safe, nurturing environment where all children can thrive and learn.

St. Marks in the Valley Day School is a private, non-profit, nationally accredited early childhood program committed to an inclusive environment that provides opportunities for families of all socio-economic levels and children with varying abilities.
