Storehouse Raises Funds For Haiti Relief

The Socorro Storehouse raised a little more than $1,500 in its burrito sale with a few pledges outstanding for its emergency relief effort for the citizens of Haiti, according to Randall Westfall of the Socorro Trinity Church.
“We hope to be around $1,700 when all of those are received,” Westfall said.
People can still donate to the cause by sending a check to P.O. Box 701, payable to Socorro Storehouse, with "Haiti" on the memo line.
Westfall said: “We were also blessed with $120 in donations specifically earmarked for Socorro Storehouse projects; we will use those funds as 'seed money' for our Community Garden project.”
Westfall said he did not have a final count on the burritos because of several walk-in orders.
“But we do know we went through 40 dozen eggs, which would indicate we sold approximately 240 burritos,” he said. “We received contributions above the price of the burritos from several generous Socorro citizens.”
