-A A +A

The 18th annual Fall Food Drive was on Nov. 23 in Los Alamos and White Rock.

The community food drive was jointly conducted by the Los Alamos Letter Carriers Union (NALC-4112), the Northern New Mexico District of the Boy Scouts of America, and L.A. Cares with the support of the National Letter Carriers Union, the United States Postal Service, the Knights of Columbus, Smith’s Food and Drug Stores, RE/MAX and many individual volunteers. The drive supports those in need in Los Alamos and Rio Arriba Counties through regular distributions by L.A. Cares and the San Martin de Porres Soup Kitchen in Española.

Residents placed non-perishable donations of food and supplies near their mailboxes by 10 a.m. Nov. 23 for pick-up by letter carriers, scouts, and volunteers. Cub Scouts collected donations at both Smith’s Supermarket locations in Los Alamos and White Rock all day that day.
