Kewa Pueblo Needs Nonperishable Goods
From the Santa Fe New Mexican:
The people of Kewa Pueblo south of Cochiti are in need of nonperishable food and personal care items after a hailstorm last week damaged their homes and prompted mold growth. Many have been evacuated from their homes and are staying with relatives, friends or in emergency shelters.
Donors can drop off nonperishable items — canned goods, rice, beans, baby food, bottled juices, water, etc., plus paper plates and cups — at The New Mexican offices at 202 E. Marcy Street from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., weekdays only, until Oct. 22. New, unopened personal-care items such as toothbrushes, shampoo, toothpaste, cosmetics, diapers, soap and more are also needed. Contributors are asked not to leave items in front of the newspaper building after hours.
The New Mexican will deliver the goods to the Kewa Pueblo Community Center for distribution by pueblo officials to families.
Volunteer: If you would like to volunteer to help rebuild, move families or have a home for a displaced family to stay in, call 505-465-2214 ext. 252.
Donate: Monetary donations are being accepted at any Wells Fargo bank; specify donation to the Kewa Relief Fund. Kewa Pueblo is also in need of donations of cleaning and roofing supplies, tarps, protective face masks, latex and work gloves, nonperishable food, diapers, formula, new clothing, linens and blankets. Drop off items at the Kewa Pueblo Community Center.
