Have a little extra time on Saturday, help Green Hope Project clean our deserts!

Thank you to all our volunteers that came out and made Saturday a successful cleanup! We have several more scheduled for October, so we hope to have you join us! The more people we have, the greater impact we will make! We even had Gilbert, a concerned citizen, stop and tell us how grateful he was for the help and attention that we were giving to his neighborhood. He went on to express how disappointed and disgusted he is with the illegal dumping and lack of concern from all the pollution. He'll now be joining us at future cleanups to help-yay!! Don't wait-sign up to help, too! Register to join at: https://www.greenhopeproject.org/clean-up-photos

Prior to joining the Health Foundation, Myrna supported the growth and economic development of our region in her role as CEO of the Paso del Norte Group.

The Alliance of Border Collaboratives (ABC) received $15,000 through the COVID-19 Response Fund to support homeless individuals living in El Paso and Ciudad Juárez. The funds were used to distribute personal protective equipment along with educational resources in English and Spanish, 130 individual shelter tents and ABC set up and replenished more than 90 hand-washing stations in homeless encampments, all to help reduce the spread of COVID-19.

Thank you to Paso Del Norte for not only fortifying my love for helping my community but the tools to do it. Volunteering through N.E.T.W.O.R.K (North East El Paso Working to Optimize Resources and Knowledge) I learned about planning. Writing requests and proposals, budgeting and collaborative working. I was 19 best couple of years. Many memories made. I am now in San Diego using what i have learned.
Friends! While most of us are required to isolate and stay at home, some of our friends and neighbors are doing important work taking care of those in need. Our caregivers, first responders and medical professionals need our help to stay safe and protected! Please consider donating to the PdNCF's new fund for medical supplies. https://pdnfoundation.org/give-to-a-fund/ep-medical-equipment-fund A number of fine folks in our community are already finding creative ways to design, 3D print, sew, fabricate, and produce much needed protection equipment for those working with the sick and those most at risk from the virus. These funds will help procure much-needed equipment and supplies for printing/making masks, face shields, ventilator parts, etc. Let's make sure we stay ahead of the demand and protect our community as best we can. Give a little, give a lot. Thanks!
Great message!
Please help the families of the victims of the El Paso mass shooting of August 3, 2019, by making a small donation.
Thank you Helen of Troy for your contribution.
