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 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
NMCTR Volunteer Day
Bienvenidos - 2018
Bienvenidos has a dual mission of keeping good food out of landfills and feeding the hungry in our community. Thanks to Chris, the Bustamantes, and the Lochners for getting up early on a Sunday morning to collect the food and bring to Bienvendios to distribute. Thanks to Christine for helping prepare the bags for distribution. Way to go team!
The next date scheduled is April 29, 2018 - contact Chris Keeton for more information.
Cystic Fibrosis Walk - 2017
On June 3, 2017, members of Santa Fe Civitan were on hand to assist with setting up the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Walk in support of Team Kailey. There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis, including Kailey, whose family is from Santa Fe. Team Kailey exceeded their $10K goal, raising over $13K for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation! Can't wait for next year.
La Familia Medical Center Health & Wellness Fiesta
Santa Fe Civitan has supported La Familia Medical Center (LFMC) for many years - stockings, paint striping, financial contributions - and this year Santa Fe Civitan helped LFMC set-up for it's first annual health and wellness fiesta on August 12, 2017. LFMC is a community health center - providing medical, dental, and mental health services to anyone in Santa Fe - regardless of their ability to pay. Santa Fe Civitan members helped erect tents, hang decorations, lug boxes, put up a stage, and much more in preparation for the fiesta - which hosted over 200 community members! Fiesta participants enjoyed free backpacks stuffed with school supplies, free hair cuts for children, health & dental screenings, and much more.
