Some New Mexicans celebrated Martin Luther King Day by giving back.
Senior Corps volunteers spent the day preparing emergency kits for homebound seniors.
They gathered water, non-perishable foods, first-aid kits and more.
The kits will help seniors survive a number of different types of emergencies.
“It can be an emergency like losing electricity for two or three days, an extended period of time when you don’t have access to a phone,” explained David Gonzales.
The emergency kits will go to Catholic Charities, Meals on Wheels, and the Seniors Companion Program.
