Adopting an APS Title 1 Angel is a heart-warming holiday tradition for the Greater Albuquerque Real Estate Community.  

Through it, we bring a little joy to the lives of APS Title 1 Angels this holiday season. Angels are APS Title 1 Homeless Students that attend school even through great hardship.

This year, GAAR REALTORS® and Affiliates are adopting angels from Eugene Field Elementary School, Freedom High School and Washington Middle School. Combined the real estate community – including real estate firms, mortgage lenders, title companies and more – adopt over 500 students each holiday season from 18 Albuquerque Public Schools. 

The GAAR REALTORS® are adopting about 35 Angels from Freedom High School.

The GAAR Affiliate Committee is adopting about 30 Angels from Washington Middle School.

The middle school and high school Angels receive stockings filled with a $20 gift card to Target, candy and small toiletry which we hand out at their holiday party. We are collecting donations through December 9th  to purchase the gifts and pay for their holiday lunch.
