From Oct. – Dec. 31st there was a community effort to raise funds for the Mission. The CHALLENGE asked community members to donate $20 and challenge at least one friend to do the same, with a Goal of $200,000 raised by December 31st, 2017.

This effort incorporated donated radio and television time, online interviews of guests living at the mission, a Christmas CD donated by Las Cruces musicians and sold at participating businesses in town, and a live Christmas Concert at the City of Las Cruces Tree Lighting Ceremony on the Plaza.

We saw an increase of new donors in participation and we hope that you felt uplifted throughout just as we did watching those donations come in through our Facebook donation page.

We raised $3000.00. Thank you for your help and support of The $20 Challenge.
We hope to raise awareness for the Mission any chance we get. If you have an event you would like to include us in or if you would like to fund-raise on our behalf, all ideas are welcomed.
