County Commission Thanks Elias Law Firm


On Jan. 14, 2020, the Bernalillo County board of commissioners recognized Elias Law Firm for its generous donations and service to families of limited resources for Thanksgiving dinner.

Since 2012, the Elias Law Firm has hosted its Operación Pavo, a community event where the firm provides Thanksgiving dinners to hundreds of families in the South Valley. In 2019, the firm gave dinners to 500 families, the largest success to date.

With assistance from family members, friends, and the community, the Elias Law Firm purchased 500 turkeys, provided numerous sides, and bagged the prepared dinners to give to families in need. Even 50 attendees were able to receive their flu shots during the event.

The Elias Law Firm was able to organize numerous partners, including Raquel “The Burrito Lady,” Starr Brothers Brewing, KOAT, Clear Channel, the New Mexico Department of Health, Bernalillo County, Steven W. Carothers & Associates and Orbit from the Albuquerque Isotopes, to create this amazing event.

Your kindness and generosity provided an even happier Thanksgiving for hundreds of people in the South Valley. Thank you for your dedication to the community of Bernalillo County.
