About the series

For almost three decades, The New Mexican has written about people in our community who make a difference.

The tradition started in 1985 in an effort to honor those who give their time and energy with little or no compensation. In past years, The New Mexican has published the stories of these volunteers in a special section. This year, we tell about them in a series starting Nov. 28 through Dec. 8.

On this Thanksgiving, we tell these stories to honor all our readers who work to make our world a better place.
