NEW MEXICO (KRQE) – The New Mexico Department of Transportation (DOT) Ports of Entry Division has partnered with the New Mexico State Police (NMSP) and New Mexico Tax and Revenue for a stuffed animal drive to benefit children in New Mexico. The departments are still taking donations for the drive and will be collecting until Saturday, September 30.
