ABOUT US:  ALL proceeds from this fundraiser go to support the following programs:

La Mesa Presbyterian Church is in the heart of the International District of Albuquerque, NM.  The church strives to be a good neighbor and to make a difference in the quality of life for this vital community.  To support the variety of community services that La Mesa provides, we hold a yearly Art Auction to raise funds.

Funds raised go towards supporting the following services that La Mesa Presbyterian provides:

  • La Mesa Food Pantry - a five-day a week food pantry providing non-perishable foods as well as produce & meats from Road Runner Food Bank.
  • The Feast of Hope Thanksgiving Community Dinner - a community-wide hot Thanksgiving meal feeding nearly 1,500 people per year.
  • La Mesa Arts Academy - a free after-school art education program for Kindergarten through 5th graders from La Mesa Elementary School.
  • Hopkins Counseling Center for Children and Families - an on-site and online counseling center that provides bi-lingual sliding scale affordable counseling for families and children in the community.
  • La Mesa Elementary School Partnership - The church has a partnership with the neighboring school and provides space for meetings, financial support for families in need, school supplies, and scholarships to defray the cost of school uniforms.
  • La Mesa Neighborhood Community Garden Park and Labyrinth - In partnership with the La Mesa Elementary, East Central Ministries, and the City of Albuquerque, we offer a gathering place and green space at a central intersection in the community.  The site features planter gardens, an outdoor classroom, community art, and xeric landscaping.
  • Partnerships and support are given to additional community organizations such as the Immigrant Refugee and Resource Village of Albuquerque (IRRVA); APD Forward; Albuquerque Interfaith; Gun Violence Prevention; and other social justice and faith-based community organizations.
