Sandoval County Treasurer’s Office Hosts Annual Thanksgiving Food Drive in Partnership with Checkerboard Food Pantry

Bernalillo, NM., November 4, 2022– The Sandoval County Treasurer’s Office staff is hosting its annual Thanksgiving Food Drive. Partnering with the Nacimiento Community Foundation, which operates The Checkerboard Food Pantry in Cuba, N.M., this food drive will collect items between now and November 15 for local Sandoval County residents who need just a little help. Distribution of these items will take place on November 16, 2022, via a drive-through program at the Checkerboard Food Pantry.

“The holiday season can be a difficult time for many families in our community which is why it is so important for all of us to pull together to help. It’s as simple as picking up a few more items as we shop and dropping them off at a donation site,” says Jennifer A. Taylor, Sandoval County Treasurer. “I believe Sandoval County is the best when it comes to generosity and pulling together for the common good. It is my goal to continue these holiday outreach events for the duration of my term and, hopefully, the tradition will continue through future administrations.” 

Nonperishable traditional Thanksgiving food donations can be made at the businesses listed below. There is also a donation site at the Sandoval County Administration Building outside the Treasurer’s Office at 1500 Idalia Road, Bernalillo, NM 87004. For more information, please contact Orlando A.
