H2O For Hurricane Victims

This last Friday, an additional twist was added to the always exciting, annual Espanola vs. Pojoaque high school football game, as Espanola High School Athletic Director, Philip Roybal, issued a challenge to all fans to benefit the recent hurricane relief efforts for Texas.

Admission to the football game Friday evening at Espanola was advertised as “Free with One Case of Water per Person" admission fee.  And all water will be donated to hurricane relief efforts.

Faculty, students, and families at both Pojoaque Valley and Espanola school districts took on the challenge with gusto with both school districts gathering a total of three busloads of water each.  This equates to about 50,000 bottles of water that will be delivered to hurricane-stricken communities in Texas and according to event organizers, also Florida.

Congratulations to both teams and their fans for coming together to help those in need.
