Thank you of the month: Thanks to a grant from the PNM Fund, which we received last year, we were able to buy new energy-efficient refrigerators.  The new refrigerators helps us cut down on electricity, food spoilage and refuse.  Thanks PNM!  The staff and clients salute you!

THE HOLIDAYS

Holidays are a tremendously busy time at Bienvenidos. We are always seeking help in the following categories:

 

EVERY DAY

It is a challenge to keep the food pantry stocked with ample food to meet the demands. Our volunteers work hard collecting from different sources and our largest donor is the local Food Depot. We have 7 freezers and 11 refrigerators and many shelves to fill, and at times they are quite bare. Bienvenidos is actively pursuing grants with which to buy more protein foods such as meats, cheeses, eggs, canned milk, even peanut butter.

We are always seeking volunteer help. Running a food pantry is hard physical work, and just one extra set of hands per hour helps tremendously. It is a constant that food comes in and goes back out, and needs handling twice (once to shelves and then to the boxes given to clients). The clothing room needs volunteers to help clients search for items needed by their households. Help with sorting and maintaining the intake and outake of clothing is needed daily. There is always something that needs to be done and we welcome all those who are willing to give of their time.
