“Yelp Pays it Forward with Nusenda Credit Union” to Collect Winter Clothing for Locker 505: Student’s Clothing Bank.
Nusenda Credit Union and Yelp ABQ, an online review website and mobile app that connects New Mexicans to local businesses, organizations, and non-profits, announces “Yelp Pays it Forward with Nusenda Credit Union,” to benefit local charities in New Mexico. The first charity event will benefit Locker 505, which provides clothing for children in need throughout Bernalillo County.
“Nusenda Credit Union is working with Yelp ABQ to support local charities and non-profits like Locker 505,” said Anneliese Elrod, senior vice president of marketing for Nusenda Credit Union. “As the largest not-for-profit cooperative in New Mexico, it is our mission to give back to the communities in which our members live and work. Too many students in New Mexico go without warm clothing in the winter months, and Locker 505 deserves all the support we can provide.”
“Yelp Pays it Forward with Nusenda Credit Union” will host its first charitable event on Tuesday, December 15 at Zendo Coffee House in Downtown Albuquerque to benefit Locker 505, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that provides appropriate school clothing to Kindergarten through 12th grade students in Bernalillo County who are in need. Starting at 7 a.m., Albuquerque residents can order a complimentary cup of coffee, paid for by Yelp ABQ, Nusenda Credit Union and Zendo, in exchange for a monetary or clothing donation to benefit Locker 505. Interested donors are encouraged to give new or gently used winter apparel and will receive complimentary coffee until 11 a.m.
“Yelp ABQ is committed to serving and connecting New Mexicans with opportunities to pay it forward to support important causes in our community,” said Howie Kaibel, senior community manager for Yelp ABQ. “‘We are excited to work with Nusenda Credit Union and to support Locker 505 to keep local kids warm this winter. We encourage Albuquerque residents to visit Zendo Coffee House on December 15 and give to Locker 505 to support children in need.”
