Happy Community Foundation Week!

To celebrate the great work we can do thanks to your support, we are featuring Ojo Sarco Community Center, which received two grants from NMF this year. Ojo Sarco, New Mexico (in Rio Arriba County, a Hispanic Center), is an isolated mountain village of 300 or so people located about two-hours round trip to full-service grocery stores. In addition to purchasing food and essential supplies, the Community Center is addressing social-emotional issues that have emerged in the community, focusing on addressing the impacts of isolation especially among the community members, mostly elders, who live alone. Carol Miller, Administrative Director-Treasurer, was asked to write a story about how Ojo Sarco fared during the pandemic. Here is a link if you would like to read the story called “A Tale of Two Carrots”.
