Empty Stocking Fund, Jan. 17, 2021
Who you’ve helped: The Empty Stocking Fund helped an Alcalde woman pay her rent, electricity and gas bills after she lost her job.
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
