Pay it 4ward: Pastor honored for helping the homeless

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.—At God’s Warehouse on Central and Tennessee, Pastor Chuck Aragon serves food for the body and soul.

"He is a great example of what we all should be doing,” said Pay it Forward nominator Dennis Chavez.


Chavez said Aragon started God’s Warehouse in a garage in downtown Albuquerque and moved it to the International District where they serve food to thousands of homeless people a week.

"He believes that everybody is equal. He believes that everybody needs help. And that's what he does,” Chavez said.

Pastor Chuck said his warehouse is a community effort.

“God's Warehouse is a community outreach program—all volunteers. We give back to our community, we just believe, amen. It takes people, like the city of Albuquerque, giving back to their community to win back their community,” he said. “There's always a bad name given to the warzone but you know what, we've turned it into the love zone."

Aragon said he will use some of the Pay it Forward money to buy his wife a trip to see her family.

"My wife has to go see her mother. She's in dying mode in Idaho and I'm going to give her 10 percent—No, I want her to make a safe trip and we love you guys and I just want Albuquerque to know that Albuquerque isn't the worst place in town. Albuquerque is the town that we make it,” he said.
