Albuquerque Rescue Mission to Hold Annual Foot Washing on Saturday

Anyone who is experiencing homelessness (men, women and children) is invited to Albuquerque Rescue Mission (ARM)'s annual Foot Washing event on Saturday, March 26, from 10:30 am to 1:30 pm. ARM is located at 525 Second St. SW. (map) The video above was produced in conjunction with the 2010 Foot Washing.

ARM will be reaching out to the homeless community by providing socks, shoes, snacks, and health assessments: "As Jesus washed the disciples' feet, so will the volunteers, podiatrist, and chaplains minister to the homeless guests of the ABQ area."

As part of its annual washing of the feet, ARM held a "Sock n' Sole Shoe & Sock Drive" to collect new socks and new or gently used shoes to distribute to participants. Even though the campaign for the drive officially concludes today, ARM might still need shoes and socks (especially shoes in these sizes: 10-13 for men and 6-9 for women). Call 346-4673 for info.
