The 9th annual Volunteer Far and Giving Day, planned for April 25, 2020, has been canceled.
The committee has continued to watch the evolution and encroachment of COVID-19.
Our state and local governments have taken action to limit the spread of the virus in New Mexico and Las Cruces. For the latest information on City of Las Cruces COVID-19 response please visit www.covid19LasCruces.com or the New Mexico Department of Health website at www.cv.nmhealth.org.
Public health experts, the Centers for Disease Control, and New Mexico Department of Health advise that social distancing is the most effective strategy for mitigating the spread of COVID-19. Many programs have suspended operation through April, both as an effort to maximize social distancing and minimize spread.
Volunteer Fair and Giving Day Committee includes the City of Las Cruces Quality of Life Department, Community Foundation of Southern New Mexico, La Casa, Mesilla Valley Habitat for Humanity, and United Way of Southwest New Mexico.
