United Way Thermometer Is On The Rise

United Way Campaign Co-chairs Pat Soran and Ann Hayes joined Executive Director Kristy Ortega in raising the United Way thermometer Oct. 9 to just under 25 percent of what local nonprofit​s are asking for. ‘We are humbled by all of the early support so far,’ Ortega said. ‘Thank you to all who have already given and we are grateful for your continued support.’ The United Way of Northern New Mexico’s fundraising campaign will continue through November to support local nonprofits as well as assist in the creation of programs and services that all focus on pressing needs in the community.​To donate or for​ more information about the Community Action Fund, visit www.UnitedWayNNM.org/Community-Action-Fund .
