Community Care Fund
The campaign is over, and now to distribute the funds. We have an amazing group of volunteers to help decide the distribution of the money raised in the fall.
Two training courses were held to guide them through the new process. Our eighteen partner agencies will come and present to the allocation panels in two separate sessions. The group will score the presentations based on the agencies grant request and the goals that each agency has set.
We are so grateful for what these wonderful volunteers do.
If you are interested in becoming an Allocation Volunteer in 2015 please contact Linda Mickey at 505-326-1195
