You can help in a number of ways:
Make a donation,
volunteer, tell others about us, or organize a food drive. Have any ideas for fund-raising? Let us know!
Donations of food, clothing, etc. can be dropped off at 1511 Fifth
Street, Tuesdays through Thursday from 8:30AM to 2:30PM. On Mondays, drop off times are 8:30am-1:00pm. It may be best
to call ahead to be sure someone will be here to receive your items
and issue you a tax-deductible donation receipt.
Please do not leave donations in the front or back of our building when we are not here. Often, these items are damaged and we cannot use them. This costs us quite a bit of money to discard--money we would rather use to purchase food.
Financial donations can be sent to:
Bienvenidos Outreach, Inc. PO Box 5873 Santa Fe NM 87502 Or dropped off at:
1511 Fifth Street Santa Fe NM 87505

If you wish to donate appreciated land, stock certificates or put
Bienvenidos Outreach into your last Will and Testament, please contact
us via e-mail or call (505) 986-0583 for further information.
If you would like to volunteer some of your time to help out, please contact us via e-mail or call (505) 986-0583 and ask for Darryl.

Holidays are a tremendously busy time at Bienvenidos. We are always seeking help in the following categories: Donate turkeys, ham and/or other holiday foods for us to give out to clients ~
Adopt a single child or a family of children and provide gifts to them for Christmas ~ sponsor a food drive at your place of business, church or social organization.
It is a challenge to keep the food pantry stocked with ample food to
meet the demands. Our volunteers work hard collecting from different
sources and our largest donor is the local Food Depot. Bienvenidos is actively pursuing grants with which
to buy more protein foods such as meats, cheeses, eggs, canned milk,
even peanut butter.
We are always seeking volunteer help. Running a food pantry is hard
physical work, and just one extra set of hands per hour helps
tremendously. It is a constant that food comes in and goes back out,
and needs handling twice (once to shelves and then to the boxes given
to clients). The clothing room needs volunteers to help clients search
for items needed by their households. Help with sorting and maintaining
the intake and outtake of clothing is needed daily. There is always
something that needs to be done and we welcome all those who are
willing to give of their time.
