Donated goods help Taos Men’s Shelter
Week after week since Nov. 1, generous Taoseños have dropped off donated socks, coats, hats and many other goods into Taos Men’s Shelter boxes left inside by the reception desk at The Taos News. The amount of donations have helped keep the clients at the Taos Men’s Shelter on Albright Street warm and reduced the amount the shelter needed to spend out of their limited budget on basic supplies.
The Taos News will continue collecting donations through spring. While the “giving season” may be over, the needs of organizations that shelter and help the homeless are constant.
Next up, the Taos Men’s Shelter has requested more jackets, hand warmer packets for these frigid days and nights, and coffee. Other donations also are always welcome, such as cleaning supplies and socks. Donations can be dropped off during regular business hours each weekday.
The Men’s Shelter stayed open longer than usual during the cold snap through New Year’s week, allowing clients to stay inside and stay warm.
