I almost hate to admit it, but I’m that person who breaks out the Christmas music before Thanksgiving is over. If I could, I’d listen to Christmas music all year round! I love the holiday season that much. Nothing makes me happier than the smell of pine, pumpkin pie and gingerbread as I snuggle with my daughter on a cold winter night.

It’s the season that reminds me how very blessed we are. It’s also the season that reminds me that so many of our clients are not as blessed and are often hungry and alone during the holidays.

That’s why we are so dedicated to our Gift Bag Program every year. Nothing warms my heart more than hearing from one of our L.I.F.E. clients who received one say, “You gave me Christmas!”

But it was actually you who gave it to them.

Your compassionate generosity is what enables us to feed and care for our hungry and hurting neighbors. In addition to your generous financial gifts, we rely on you and others in our community to donate Gift Bag items such as:

  • Toiletries (toothpaste, lotions, soaps)
  • Blankets
  • Books
  • Games and puzzles
  • 2019 calendars
  • Household goods (mugs, dish towels, pot holders, picture frames).

You can drop off any of these items at our offices located at 5901 Harper Drive NE, Albuquerque. Or you can call us about picking up any large quantities of these items.

Please help us serve each and every person who needs us, not only during the holidays but all year long!

Or click here to donate monetarily and we’ll buy the presents for you! Be sure to note “Holiday Gifts” in the note section!
