Back to school is here again, but this year a lot has changed. Instead of the usual school supplies, many children need hygiene kits with soap, toothpaste, tampons, shampoo, etc. We support families living in poverty in Santa Fe by donating 30% of all sales from Shiprock Santa Fe, Santa Fe Vintage, Boyd & Allister Home, and Maida Goods plus 10% of sales the same day from 8am-2pm at Dolina Cafe & Bakery to a Communities in Schools program supporting basic needs to Santa Fe families. Organized by Raashan Ahmad in partnership with Communities in Schools. Please email with any questions.

Esperanza Shelter is hosting a virtual fundraiser this holiday season. Holiday Trees of Hope will run from November 1, 2020 through December 1, 2020. We are currently looking for any individuals, organizations and/or groups that are interested in sponsoring a holiday tree (6ft to 7ft) to auction off.

Trees will be decorated and on display for virtual presentation at the Drury Santa Fe. Trees are auctioned off and delivered fully decorated to your home on December 2nd and 3rd. All money raised will benefit Esperanza's COVID emergency fund. We'd like to thank our partners who are donating their services to this fundraiser.

Kicking off Santa Fe Habitat's COVID Screen Project – do you know a business who needs protective screening!? 😷 Santa Fe Habitat for Humanity is proud to share that a small group of our "regs" (regular volunteers) are working hard from their homes to provide protective screening to help keep local businesses safe. These innovative and engineer-minded volunteers are building custom plastic framing to allow local stores to continue operations in a safe capacity that socially distances customers from staff. These screens are free of charge for businesses who aren't able to afford similar products.

Our volunteers have adapted the Habitat model to this project to ensure the screens are financially accessible to the public. The labor and materials are available free-of-charge. We hope that businesses who receive protective screening, will in-turn, contribute in-kind donations as they are able to help cover the hard costs for volunteers to build more frames! We are proud to see this volunteer group spearheading such a vital community project to proactively support the community by using their engineering skills to build custom screens!

Help us spread the word about our COVID Screen Project to local businesses. For inquiries and questions, please contact Project Organizer, Bill Koogler, at or by calling the Santa Fe Habitat Office (505) 986-5880.
