ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Hunger doesn’t take a spring break.
St. Pius’ high school gym was turned into a giant assembly line Wednesday all in the name of charity.
Dozens of volunteers from all ages gathered to help out with a massive food packing project.
This is the sixth year St. Pius has done this food drive project. With the help of some area churches the group was able to raise over $22,000 which will help them pack nearly 200,000 meals.
“Its just amazing if you feel the spirit in this gym of kids of all ages from kindergarten all the way up to grandparents working together it just shows you that everybody no matter how old or small you are can make a difference, said Community Director Alicia Eiler.
The food that is packed Wednesday will go to the needy here in New Mexico, as well as to those in the Philippines still suffering from last year’s typhoon.
