Letter To The Editor: It Takes A Village To Fill A Pantry

By LA Cares Board
Los Alamos

In a single day, the LA Cares shelves went from practically empty to almost full.

Saturday, May 14, the local members of the National Letter Carriers Association, assisted by Scouts from the Sangre de Cristo District,  held their semi-annual food drive. An estimated seven tons of food, set next to mailboxes all over town, and contributed by shoppers at both Smith’s stores, was picked up, sorted and moved into storage.

The hard work of the Carriers, the Cubs, Boy Scouts and Venture crew members,  he use of the Knights of Columbus Hall for sorting, and the Zia Realty Group’s truck to move everything into the LA Cares storage areas made a very successful day flow smoothly and quickly.

It took a lot of work by a lot of people. It took a very generous community, once again responding to address local food insufficiency.

To all of you, who together made it happen, thank you!
