ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - A local food pantry now has a new home thanks to a team of local businesses who donated time and lots of money.
Volunteers from several local businesses have been working hard to construct a new food pantry for South Albuquerque Cooperative Ministries at the Cristo del Valle Church on Isleta Boulevard SW.
The charity's old pantry closed recently, but now a new one is taking shape.
"We're hoping to bring in people to bring their donations -- food and money," said Veronica Gonzales of Keller Williams Realty. "At some point there will be perishables, but at this point it will be nonperishable."
Volunteers hoped to finish constructing the food pantry Wednesday.
