A Local Appeal for Haiti Relief

Nancy Pope of the New Mexico Collaboration to End Hunger sent out this note:

I have been asked by members of the New Mexico Collaboration to End Hunger to coordinate pooling donations from any members that are interested in donating money to hunger relief for the victims of the earthquake in Haiti.

Whatever money is donated (by end of day Friday) the Albuquerque Community Foundation (ACF), as the fiscal agent for the Collaboration, will send a check to the United Nations World Food Programme

The thought is that as we pool our donations together, representing a very food insecure State in the United States, it may be more  meaningful to those in Haiti that are also very food insecure, especially now.

If you or your organization would like to donate money, please call (505) 883-6240 (ACF’s office) and ask for Colleen or Cassidy.

Thanks so much.
