Inmates under the New Mexico Corrections Department started a water drive earlier this week to hand out to residents who were the hardest hit during last week's storms.
Residents in Silver City, Las Cruces and Socorro donated roughly 1,000 cases.
Officials at NMCD said for many of the offenders, delivering water to people in need may be the first time they have experienced the, “powerful reward of unselfishness.”
