Community cupboard set up in Las Cruces

An act of kindness goes a long way, especially during these trying times. Which is why one Las Cruces woman is taking kindness to the next level, setting up free cupboard outside her home to help those who need it most. KVIA reports that on the busy intersection of Boutz Road and Chaparro Street, sits a large sign that reads “Show Kindness.” Above it, the cupboard, full of food, water and books. Amy Whipple told ABC-7 she’s a caregiver for people in her neighborhood who are at risk of catching Covid-19. Instead of going to their houses too often, she helped create the cupboard to help those who need items from it most.
