Fundrasing Letter

Submitted on: April 27, 2017

Dear Family and Friends,

After achieving honors for creativity, teamwork and innovation in their state academic tournament on March 4, three teams from Portales earned the right to compete in Destination Imagination's Global Finals, the world's largest celebration of student creativity, to be held May 24-27, 2017, in Knoxville, Tennessee.

The Portales teams are now involved in fund raising activities to enable them to travel to Knoxville, TN to participate in Global Finals. You can help by making a financial donation to the Portales Schools, G/T Activity Fund.  We have raised $14,000, but still need $6,000 to fund this incredible opportunity!  Your help in achieving this goal is sincerely appreciated!

The Portales High School team called "The 4 Floor Breadcrumbs" comprised of Kalob Nichols, Bella Roy, Nichole Washburn, and Nakia Jackson participated in the Improv Challenge.

Lindsey-Steiner Elementary teams earning the right to participate are:

"Skitles" including members Justin Yan, Juan Dominguez, Alyssa Neighbours, Rae Ruiz, Ariana Salguero, Kami Sievers, and Jolie Griffith, participated in the Fine Arts Challenge.

"The Peptimisms" including members John Bacon, Samuel Marquez, Malia Poyer, Carissa Jouett, and Emily Crawford participated in the Technical Challenge.

These teams will compete with other teams in the Improv challenge, the Fine Arts challenge, and the Technical challenges respectively.  These challenges are open-ended challenges, which require the students to apply science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) skills, in addition to their talents in improvisation, theater arts, writing, project management, communication, innovation, teamwork, community service and social entrepreneurship.

These students will be among the more than 8,000 students representing more than 1,400 teams that will advance Global Finals at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. For more information about Global Finals, visit .

Destination Imagination is a leader in project-based learning opportunities that blend STEM education with the arts and social entrepreneurship. Its academic challenges are designed to teach kids how to think, not what to think, and then present their solutions at regional and state tournaments. 

Each year, DI competitions in NM are held at a state tournament, where team solutions are assessed by a panel of trained appraisers, ranging from educators to artists to engineers. Each team solution is scored on a variety of elements, including originality, workmanship, presentation and teamwork. Top tiered teams from the state Affiliate level then advance to Global Finals.

Walmart #FightHunger Campaign Underway

Submitted on: April 19, 2017

Wal-Mart's "FightHunger Spark Change" campaign runs through May 15 at nationwide Wal-Mart stores, including Portales and Clovis Wal-Mart locations.  Funds raised through this campaign benefit Feeding America member food banks and partners, including the Food Bank of Eastern New Mexico.

#FightHunger Spark Change is a simple way for shoppers to join this campaign against hunger by:

  • Purchasing certain marked products. For every purchase, a donation will be made to the Food Banks equaling 1 meal.
  • Donating a dollar amount of $1, $2, $5 or an amount of the customer's choice at the register during checkout.
  • Using #FightHunger on Twitter and Instagram, sharing and liking campaign posts on Facebook, and using unique Snapchat filters nationwide on April 21. For each online act of support, Wal-Mart will donate $0.90 to Feeding America –enough to help secure 10 meals on behalf of Feeding America food banks, up to $1.5 Million

Clovis and Portales Wal-Mart stores donated over 261,000 pounds of food to the Food Bank last year.  "We are so thankful for their continued support of our food programs and efforts to fight hunger in eastern New Mexico," said Food Bank Executive Director Dianna Sprague.

Feeding America began in 1979 as a clearinghouse for national food donations and is the currently the largest hunger-relief organization in the United States. The nationwide network of food banks, including the Food Bank of Eastern New Mexico, provides more than 3.6 billion meals to virtually every community in the United States through food pantries and meal programs.

In its 33rd year, the Food Bank of Eastern New Mexico distributes over 1 million pounds of food each year through its programs and partner agencies in Curry, Roosevelt, DeBaca, Quay, Guadalupe and Torrance Counties.
