Empty Stocking Fund, Jan. 18, 2021
Who you’ve helped: The Empty Stocking Fund bought furniture and clothing and paid for housing and utilities for a Santa Fe woman who recently moved into an apartment after being homeless for three years.
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
