And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased. Hebrews 13:16
Our people must learn to devote themselves to doing what is good, in order to provide for urgent needs and not live unproductive lives. Titus 3:14
I have been getting calls for help from food to housing…….it is very heart breaking to hear some of the stories. I had a sweet lady contact me about housing for her and her two-year-old son……..another lovely woman had her lease cancelled at her place of business, because she us unable to conduct business, as her business, cosmetology, is considered non-essential. The landlord wants to fill that office with a business that is active. I try to help all people. Another lady was let go by the company she worked for.
Here is a wonderful story…..I told Franchesca to call and she did, the Angeles delivered!
From Franchesca Stevens, who is pictured above.
With everything we are all going through right now, I would like to tell you about something incredibly good that is happening within our community.
A friend gave me a number this week to call for a free food delivery since I, like everyone else, am confined to my home because of Coronavirus, and am also a senior who is immunosuppressed due to my fight with breast cancer. I was told that this number would connect me with a local charity, but, to my surprise, I soon found out that this relief effort is not funded by the government, but, rather, PERSONALLY by our own NM State Auditor Brian Colon and one of his friends, Erin Chisolm, who owns Chisolm Trail RV. It’s called Brian’s Angels and Team Chisholm and they, with the help of a small group of volunteers, have already delivered 8,000 free meals and more than 1,000 free food care packages over the past few weeks. They also have a GOFUNDME campaign called BriansAngels and TeamChisolm.
In my experience, I called the number I was given around 3 p.m. one day this week and within TWO HOURS someone was at my doorstep with two bags full of delicious perishable and non perishable food: things like canned beans, potato chips, meat, applesauce, lunch snack packs, tortillas, frozen vegetables, Ramen noodles, etc.
When I later talked to Auditor Colon on the phone to thank him, he simply said, “We’re just a couple of folks who wanted to help families out during this time. We are dropping boxes but spreading love and hope while we restore people’s faith in humanity.”
He also encouraged anyone else who needs help to text him on his personal phone at 505-270-2154. It’s my guess you won’t wait long!
