SANDOVAL COUNTY COMMUNITY SERVICES LAUNCHES WARM CLOTHING DRIVE FOR SENIORS
Donations of coats, jackets, mittens, and more sought for seniors
Bernalillo, NM, November 1—Sandoval County’s Prevention and Intervention Programs and Senior Program are partnering to collect warm clothing items and blankets for county seniors in need. The Warm Clothing Drive begins today and items may be dropped off until December 15, 2022, Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Collection bin is in the lobby at 711 Camino Del Pueblo, Bernalillo, NM 87004.
Regarding the Warm Clothing Drive, Community Services Director Anne Ryan shared, “We look forward to the community’s support of this effort. Seniors are more vulnerable to the cold and many are on fixed incomes. Any assistance that helps to mitigate colder conditions during the winter months is always helpful, and we appreciate the community’s support.”
