In 2018, we upped the count to 1885 Thanksgiving meals distributed from Calvary's 1800 S. Locust campus. The following week, the number of meals exceeded 2000 as Casa De Peregrinos delivered meals to rural areas. The response to Calvary sharing its building was overwhelmingly positive. The additional space and pre-distribution storage Calvary offered, as well as the 205 Calvary volunteer workers, allowed for rapid and efficient preparation and distribution. The staff of CDP, La Casa, and Calvary (as well as meal recipients) all agreed that 2018's distribution was a huge, smooth success!
Calvary thanks all of the hard-working volunteers who stepped up willingly to do any and every task asked of them! We love that we got over 200 people involved from our church and hope that even more are able to participate in 2019.
In 2019 we're raising the goal to 2000-2500 meals to be shared with the needy, and we'll need your help! So please save the date (usually the week before Thanksgiving) to help us feed the hungry in Las Cruces!
