ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – It’s all in efforts to make sure all New Mexican children receive a gift this holiday season.
St. Nick’s Kids Christmas is being put on by the Datil Community Center. They are accepting everything from toys to warm clothing for kids of all ages.
Organizer Helen Wood joined KRQE’s This Morning team to discuss the event. Watch above.
Datil, N.M. is located in Catron County, and even though it is the biggest county in the state, it is also the poorest.
The St. Nick Christmas event is looking to receive toys, clothes, shoes, scarves and even dinner boxes and Christmas trees.
Drop off locations are the Eagle Guest Store in Datil or at the Wendi Otero Bookkeeping and Tax Service in Soccorro or monetary donations can be giving at their Go Fund Me Page. For those who can join in on the fun, the event will take place at the Datil Commuity Center on Wednesday, December 21 starting at 5 p.m.
Santa will be present along with snacks and gifts.
