Donate to help a family directly:

  • Gift Cards or Donations to PB&J’s “Emergency Fund” enables a family to purchase food or other emergency items.
  • Donate to PB&J’s “Keep’n the Lights-On Fund”. For families facing homelessness, paying the PNM (and Gas) bill can often make it possible for them to remain in their home.  Also parents who are getting on their feet, cannot move into affordable apartments without first paying off an old PNM debt.
  • $350 will provide for a young child who has been placed in foster care, but needs help with furnishings and other essentials to get settled in.
