Taos Feeds Taos

Are you in or near Taos?  If so, please join me tonight at KTAOS Solar Center for the 5th Annual Taos Feeds Taos Food Drive at 8:00 pm.  Admission is either 5 cans of food or $7.00 per person.  The very, very cool local band Last to Know is headlining. 

A little bit of background about Taos Feeds Taos from their website:

"Taos Feeds Taos - 27 years of Feeding Needy FamiliesOur Taos County is rich in beauty, natural resources, art and culture. For this we give thanks as the holiday season approaches. But many among us are struggling to keep their families together, warm and well-fed. We urge Taos individuals, families and businesses who have been blessed with prosperity in 2012 to join us in helping those in need.
Since 1997 we have delivered over 7000 baskets and the amount spent for food has been in excess of $500,000.00.

This project would not be a success without the support of the National Guard who have allowed us to use the Armory, the troops and the trucks to transport and deliver the food to outlying communities, also the public school children for the food and money contributions.

Lastly thank you Taos for the money and donations, and for your help in putting the baskets together. WE ARE A NON-PROFIT 501 c-3 CORPORATION.

The group's t-shirt uniforms say it all: "Love JOY Peace."
