In December '08 Random Acts did another Books and Balls in honor of late firefighter Ernie Carrasco.
Today a phenomenal group of volunteers came together at BCFD station 33 to wrap all the gifts for the nearly 300 children we are giving gifts to this year.
Every year Random Acts partners with NM Solutions, and Albuquerque area foster agency, to provide specific gifts to all their foster kids. This is three years worth of Christmas memories.
Today Random Acts went shopping for the 300 children we are helping this year for Christmas. We had the absolute best group of volunteers and little helpers running around buying presents for children in need.
A small school in AFD'd District 5 is comprised of three building and after running a call there we found out not one of them had heat. Random Acts bought heaters for the other buildings and an AFD firefighter that is also an licensed electrician installed them for us. The kids were almost more excited about the heat than they were the trucks and firefighters who can to deliver the heaters.
For Thanksgiving 2015 some the the Board of Directors of The Firefighters Random Acts along with L15, E15, R15 and a few wonderful volunteers served food to 150 residence at a HUD senior living facility.
Early on in our history the Make-a-wish foundation contacted us to see if we would help them with a project. There was a little boy with a terminal illness who was granted any wish he wanted. His choice was to build a playground in his back yard that he and his little brother could enjoy while he was here and create solid memories for him for the future.
We at Random Acts can hardly believe the number of volunteers we had come out to help us today. We had identified 156 families in need of Thanksgiving meals
