The New Mexico Corrections Department is collecting bottled water to provide to residents affected by last week’s floods. Water donations will be accepted through Friday.
Residents can drop off water at any Probation and Parole Office in the state. Inmates in NMCD custody will be utilized to transfer the water from the offices to the affected towns and cities. During this difficult time, NMCD wants to do its part to help these communities rebuild.
“Governor Martinez has stated that we must now move toward recovery and we are going to make sure that the New Mexico Corrections Department and its inmates are a part of the process.” Secretary of Corrections Gregg Marcantel said. “We are committed to being good neighbors and making sure our offenders have a chance to give back to their communities while serving time.”
