LAAOR And LA Cares Partner On Holiday Food Drive


The Los Alamos Association of REALTORS (LAAOR) and LA Cares are partnering on a holiday food drive. LAAOR President David Horpedahl and the Association’s Board of Directors announced that as a part of the annual meeting held Nov. 29t the Realtors Association is spearheading a food drive in Los Alamos through Dec. 22.

Canned and non-perishable food items donated will help local families in need of assistance this holiday season and all year round. Distribution of food items to families occurs twice every month at the Bethlehem Lutheran Church, 2390 North Road.

Monetary donations also are accepted with checks made payable to LA Cares , PO Box 248, Los Alamos, NM 87544. Monetary donations are used to buy items at the Santa Fe Food Depot not normally donated such as perishable goods such as meats, chicken and fish.

LA Cares has been helping local families in Los Alamos since 1992. Volunteers Rosemary Frederickson and Jeanne Bulter are happy to be working with LAAOR to bring food and joy to Los Alamos families. LAAOR invites the community to also participate in this needed community endeavor.

LAAOR will collect non-perishable items until Dec. 22 at the following drop off points:

  • Mary Deal Realty – 2610 Trinity Dr. #4;
  • RE/MAX Los Alamos – 116 Central Park Square; and
  • Zia Realty Group – 1475 Central Ave. Unit 150.
