Empty Stocking Fund, Dec. 13, 2020
Who you’ve helped this year: Car repairs caused a 50-year-old Española woman to fall behind on rent. The Empty Stocking Fund helped her pay her rent and electric bill.
How it works: Applications for funding are carefully vetted. Members of the Empty Stocking Committee review requests and meet with each qualifying applicant to examine records of outstanding bills or other needs, and to verify the applicant’s income. If a request is approved, the committee sends a check directly to the service supplier. The cap for most requests is $1,000.
2020 goal: $275,000
