As you all know, there are many families in need during the holidays. Below are several resources to pass on to your members and neighbors to help get the word out about assistance in the community.

The Roadrunner Food Bank is running very low in food and funds for this holiday season and is in desperate need of donations. Please be generous and consider donating. Below is the link to their website for further information.

The Bernalillo County Sheriff’s North Valley Substation is going to give out 60 food boxes for Christmas. Please contact Glenda Mazon at the North Valley Sheriff’s Substation at 314- 0143 if you know of a family in need.
