Feeding The Homeless
The Santa Fe Civitan club has come together on many occasions over the past two years to serve food and provide general assistance to the homeless at Pete's Place Shelter. The folks really appreciate the delicious and healthy food we provide. What a humbling and rewarding experience. This season, Santa Fe Civitan prepared meals for over 100 people on December 10, 2017 and March 3, 2018. #EPIC

Bienvenidos - 2018
Bienvenidos has a dual mission of keeping good food out of landfills and feeding the hungry in our community. Santa Fe Civitan helps out by doing their Sunday rounds, picking up donated food from local groceries and restaurants, and taking that food back to Bienvendios for sorting and distribution. Contact Chris Keeton if you'd like to participate next time.
Cystic Fibrosis Walk - 2018
There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis, including Kailey, whose family is from Santa Fe, and her grandmother is a member of Santa Fe Civitan. Last year Team Kailey exceeded their $10K goal, raising over $13K for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation! Santa Fe Civitan members help by donating $500 to the walk, spreading the word, and helping set-up the day of the walk. This year a few of us even walked!
Santa Fe Civitan is part of the Civitan Great Southwest District; which covers New Mexico, Colorado, & El Paso, TX. For our spring 2018 District Meeting, the theme was "service." The Santa Fe Civitan Club partnered with the NM School for the Deaf to hold a book drive for their Early Intervention for Children Who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing Program. This awesome program works with deaf or hard of hearing children ages 0-6 all over the state, to encourage literacy at an early age.
We challenged the other clubs in the district, offering $100 (to be donated to a service project/organization of their choice) to the club that brought the most books. We were amazed when we collected 270 books! Can you imagine?
The City of Vision Club won the challenge by collecting and donating 61 books! Amazing!
