A non-profit organization in El Paso has been helping underserved families here in town and New Mexico. Even before the pandemic hit there are families that were already struggling financially. It can be tough when you’re a single mother trying to provide for the family.
But luckily there’s a non-profit organization that continues to go above and beyond to help our community. The non-profit organization I have mentioned lately is HERPantry that’s located at 4727 Hondo Pass Dr. Suite E. They’re always helping out families by providing the necessities for women as well as their babies.
Their goal is to help underserved families in and around the borderland since certain necessities are costly especially when you’re on a really tight budget. At their distribution site, they provide infant formula, children’s diapers, and menstrual products for women. HERPantry wants to raise awareness about diaper needs and menstrual poverty.
This non-profit organization not only serves individuals but also organizations when they can. They serve households at least once a month to Texas and New Mexico residents. If you’re in need of certain items to help take some of the load off your budget, then you’re in luck. But sometimes they even hold distribution events twice a month.
There is another distribution coming up on Tuesday, September 20, in the Northeast. The distribution will begin from 6:30 to 7:30 pm at Holy Ghost Tabernacle. They will be distributing children’s diapers, baby wipes, infant formula, and menstrual products.
If you’re planning on picking up a donation kit make sure to have your photo I.D. on hand. Plus, they’re more than happy to accept your donations to continue helping out the community as they have been. You can get more information by clicking on the highlighted link above or by visiting their Facebook page.
Don’t forget they’re also in need of volunteers so if you can spare some of your free time. Also, they’re always accepting donations whether it is diapers, baby wipes, and infant formula.
