Bienvenidos Outreach launches food drive in Santa Fe
Bienvenidos Outreach Inc., a local food pantry, is accepting donations of nonperishable food at New Mexico Bank and Trust’s two locations in Santa Fe — 1592 St. Michael’s Drive and 1549 Paseo de Peralta — until the end of February.
“The idea is to bring awareness to the community about Bienvenidos,” Executive Director Susan Tarver said of the food drive, called “Give Your Hearts to Bienvenidos Outreach.”
“We need more food donations, especially in the winter months,” Tarver said.
New Mexico Bank and Trust has designated Bienvenidos as its Business of the Month.
Located on Fifth Street, Bienvenidos offers daily lunches to members of the homeless community and provides food boxes to low-income families twice a month. Organizers also accept donated housewares and clothing to offer to its clients.
