PORTALES (BNM)- The New Mexico Baptist Children's Home and Family Ministries in Portales depends on New Mexico Baptists to donate food items to the annual Fall Food Drive. The donations help feed the children for an entire year. Donations received are carefully sorted and stored, ready to be prepared and served. The NMBCH appreciates your support of the 100-year-old ministry that makes a difference in the lives of the children God entrusts in their care.
