United Way Of Northern New Mexico Summer Tours

In this fast-paced digital age we see many heart-warming stories, random acts of kindness, and stories that inspire us from all over the world.  

United Way has seen many stories just like these and they are happening right in our backyards. You have helped make these stories. We invite you to see first hand, what stories your investment in the community is creating.

For us here at United Way this has been THE MOST rewarding part of our job and we urge you to take some time to partake in a visit or two. We cannot express enough how this has enhanced our giving experience.  

While every visit is very important, here are three tours and their highlights:

The Scenic Tour: Tuesday, June 23

Take a portion of the high road to Taos and visit a community center in Ojo Sarco that serves as a food depot, library and community gathering place for the people of Ojo Sarco. Lunch at a popular burger joint in Embudo Valley.  Tour finishes off with a visit to National Award Winning Embudo Valley Library.  See how they have created a community hub around  their library.

The Impact Tour: Tuesday, June 30
