We have learned recently that the South Valley has 13 or more people (families) living under the Ceasar Chavez Bridge. During Thanksgiving week, La Plazita will be cooking a Thanksgiving dinner for these homeless individuals from the South Valley area and will be accepting donations on their behalf, and other needy families.
On Tuesday, from 6:00 pm. to 9:00 pm. there will be a Thanksgiving Meeting. The topic of discussion will be Helping Others – Making A Difference Day is Not Over. They are expecting a variety of community attendance. Our presence and participation would serve as a tremendous asset.
Please bring canned goods, turkeys, stuffing, and any ingredients so La Plazita may provide people in need with the holiday spirit and a hot Thanksgiving meal. They are also accepting blankets, socks, gloves, and clothes.
La Plazita Institute is a grassroots-based organization based out of Albuquerque’s South Valley. La Plazita Institute’s mission is to strengthen community and enable youth to leave behind a destructive lifestyle by tapping into their own roots to express core traditional values of respect, honor, love, family, and community.
