For more than seven years, Smith’s Food and Drug stores in Albuquerque, New Mexico have partnered with KRQE Cares Food for Kids to collect food and grocery items for the APS Title 1 Mckinney Vento program.
“Our goal is zero hungry,” Smiths Division Corp Affairs Manager said. KRQE Cares Food for Kids program puts collection boxes for food items in Albuquerque area Smith’s stores during June and July. The food collected is donated to Mckinney Vento and offers assistance to children and their families who are going through transitional housing situations and who may not have the means for or access to food. Smith’s graciously donates $10,000 dollars each year to the donation program to help support the efforts of this incredibly important program.
