Grants Community Pantry needs volunteers

GRANTS, N.M. - The Grants Community Pantry has adjusted in the face of COVID-19 and is continuing to assist the community one food contribution at a time. Although operations have changed – that clients can no longer come into the building to pick up their food – the pantry is still busier than ever. Various circumstances caused by the COVID-19 situation have led to a great need of food for the families of Cibola County. According to the Community Pantry Executive Director Alice Perez, “Since March 17, approximately 475 families have been added to the distribution of over 1,000 existing families.”

Services push on into ‘new normal’

GRANTS, N.M. - Like everyone else, Roberta’s Place is simply taking things one day at a time. They are approaching each new day with the mindset of dealing with barriers and needs as they come and maintaining a strong focus on the wellbeing of not only the people they help but their own workers as well. They are making sure to take extra measures for disinfecting the program areas and doing all that they can to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
