ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – On Saturday, local businesses and churches combined forces for Expo New Mexico’s first Fair Cares Wellness Drive. State fair officials teamed up with Calvary Church in Collaboration with Convoy of Hope to distribute 1,600 boxes of free food.
Albertson’s pharmacy was on hand to distribute 2,000 flu vaccinations. Workers from Vitalant Blood Services held a blood drive to help tackle the blood shortage, and there were even volunteers assisting New Mexicans in filling out the 2020 census.
Organizers say even though there’s no state fair, they still wanted to give to the community. “We just need New Mexicans to step up for each other, and this is the time to come together, and that’s what the fair is about,” said General Manager of Expo New Mexico Dan Mourning. Saturday’s event ended Saturday at five.
