Please help us thank your readers for so generously supporting the National Association of Letter Carriers and their local food drive. It makes such a difference to the thousands of families we serve every month. The drive this year realized over 18,000 pounds of food for distribution to area families in crisis and 19 other non-profit feeding programs assisted by ECHO Inc. Food Bank.

 

We appreciate the community support! We have much to be thankful for in this year's drive.

 

Many local businesses, churches and other organizations sponsored ads and posted reminders at their locations. The community has been very generous for their neighbors in need and we wish we could personally thank every sponsor and every contributor!

 

ECHO Inc. Food Bank is a private, non-profit, 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization assisting qualified low-income individuals and organizations engaged in feeding low-income individuals and families, providing 2.5 million pounds of food in northwest New Mexico to more than 15,000 individuals last year.

 

Again, thank you for your support of area families in need, you all make such a difference in our community.
