Thousands of residents of Northern New Mexico have had to evacuate their homes due to wildfires and are staying with friends and family or in shelters across the region. Supplies are needed for the people and their pets/animals to help them in their time of need.
Many local, state and national organizations are joining in the effort to provide aid. Here are some organizations that are accepting donations or seeking volunteers.
The Foundation is in contact with relief organizations with established programs in San Miguel and Mora counties to find out which ones are facing unmet needs. The plan is to process organizations’ funding requests as they come in and award grants of up to $10,000 each to those who demonstrate needs
The All Together NM Fund is collecting donations for New Mexicans impacted by wildfires burning across the state. The funds will be distributed to affected New Mexico communities in coordination with local organizations for emergency shelter, food and water distribution, and access to medical support.
