Do­nated goods help Taos Men’s Shel­ter

The Taos News - - VECINOS - – Staff re­port

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.
