St. Martin’s Hospitality Center
We started our day in Albuquerque with the team at Good Day New Mexico where we talked about the mission, how great it has been to meet so many enthusiastic volunteers along the journey so far, and how others can help. Then we visited St. Martin’s Hospitality Center in Albuquerque where we helped prepare and serve lunch to those in need.
