Volunteers spend MLK Day preparing emergency kits for seniors

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.
