Empty Stocking Fund, Jan. 15, 2021

Who you’ve helped: A Santa Fe woman’s water pipe burst while she was away from home tending to a family emergency. She was unaware of the situation for three weeks. The Empty Stocking Fund paid her overdue water 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
