Quay County is teaming up with our fellow community agencies and will be building Backpacks for Foster Children.

PullTogether is about enlisting all New Mexicans-parents, families, teachers, young people, and community members-in the fight to make New Mexico the best place to be a kid. We may face challenges, but our strong communities and diverse cultures make it possible to give all children the love, support, and guidance they deserve.

What can you do today that will make a difference in the life of a child?
Buy a new backpack and fill it with new, unused items from one of these three lists, and we will get it to a foster child who needs it. Once you've assembled your backpack, drop it off at your local CYFD office 107 W. Aber, Tucumcari, NM 88401
