Dec 20, 2020: Jessica Corley and seven masked elves wrapped presents and put together baskets of food and treats for immigrant families, including many children. Thanks to Giving Tree donations, there will be joy this unique Christmas in asylum-seeking families in Albuquerque. This is in addition to our work with medical, legal, food and eviction prevention in both the housing-challenged and migrant populations.

December 2020. A librarian and member of Nahalat Shalom donated bilingual Spanish/English books enough for all our immigrant families for the holidays. The books are for children of all ages - from early readers to chapter books. They will keep children engaged and learning after the biscochitos are all gone!

No one should go hungry in this country of abundance, even during the pandemic. We appreciate our volunteers who help collect and distribute food to asylum-seeking families resident in Albuquerque and struggling to make ends meet. We supplement food pantry staples and meats with fresh produce purchased in bulk.
