El Paso has seen so many stories of people donating their time, money and more to help out the Sun City. Even a church from a hundred miles away came to help. The people are El Paso are resilient and have been doing their part to help out those affected by the mass shooting on Wednesday at Walmart. While our community has been coming together, others from farther away have also come and lend a helping hand to those in need after the shooting. After donating blood at Vitalant, I saw a group of people who drove all the way from Alamogordo to offer their assistance in any way they can.

Mountain View Church is a "church for everyone" located in Alamogordo, New Mexico. The church is very active in their community, having plenty of events to support various groups and efforts. From Burgers with Badges, Speciall Needs Dances, Back to School Backpack drives and more. They also are the home of one of the great Runners Refuge food trucks. According to Mountain View:

This ministry was birthed in the heart of John and Rachel Stout in Dallas TX. The mission is simple "The Church has left the building" Every 4th Sunday at MVC, we roll out the trailer and pick an area of the city and feed the community. Runners Refuge will also respond to "Crises Relief" and "Disaster Relief" in New Mexico or sister states.

One of those crises was close to home in El Paso so the group grabbed their ruck and headed out to the Sun City to do what they could. The Runners Refuge food truck is currently set up at the Vitalant blood donation center at 424 South Mesa Hills. They will be serving free meals to first responders and blood donors today and tomorrow until they run out of food. I had a plate myself and it was delicious! Please make an appointment, donate blood and help save a life.
