Casa de Peregrinos: An Evening of Hope
Casa de Peregrinos' First Virtual Online Auction, to benefit our 35,000 clients. Our mission at CdP is to alleviate hunger in our community through the acquisition and distribution of nutritious food.
As we all know, COVID-19 has impacted so many of our residents in the Doña Ana County. At CdP, we have seen a huge increase in the number of clients that have needed our help because of the uncertainty of COVID-19: growing from 30,000 in 2019 to over 35,000 in 2020. In 2020, we distributed 4.7 million pounds of food, an increase from 3.8 million in 2019, and we predict this number will be increasing in 2021. We are launching this event to raise funds to help feed the community with nutritious foods. To make this event a real triumph, we want to ask for your help.
