ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – New Mexico farmers and ranchers are teaming up to help out the Ronald McDonald House.

The Women’s Leadership Committee and the New Mexico Farm and Livestock Bureau spent Monday shopping at Smith’s off Constitution.

The Ronald McDonald House recently expanded their facilities and is in need of food donations. So, both groups helped stock their pantries.

“We’re helping the community, we’re helping our neighbors, we’re helping other farming families and ranching families to take care of their families when somebody is sick,” said Anita Hand of Women’s Leadership Committee.

The charity provides room and board for out-of-town families whose children are in local hospitals.
