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 or the New Mexico Department of Health website at

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.  

City of Las Cruces news releases are available on the home page of the City website at under News & Announcements and can be translated into Spanish and multiple other languages using the Select Language feature on the lower right side of the page.
