Cobb: United Way Community Action Fund – Cost-effective And Comprehensive Way To Help Our Neighbors In Northern New Mexico

on October 19, 2017 - 3:14pm
By DON COBB
Adjunct Board Member
United Way of Northern New Mexico

My involvement with the United Way of Northern New Mexico has evolved in stages. For many years I contributed as a lab employee because it was convenient through payroll deductions, and it seemed like the right thing to do. But I really didn’t understand where my money was going or how it was being distributed. Then one day in 2005, two colleagues who were on the United Way board invited me to attend a meeting. The hook was set.

I was invited to serve out the remaining term of a board member who was stepping down.

With Christmas arriving month after next I am reminded of an incident I encountered last year in the checkout line at Smith’s.

A teenage boy whose eyes sparkled with that Christmas Eve magic was emptying his cart onto the conveyor belt. Gifts for the family, snacks and a holiday cake moved toward the checker. I remember thinking how excited and proud he appeared. I wondered if this was his first year working, making money to treat his parents and siblings to a Christmas celebration.
