“The funds from the Forest Service have enabled us to provide wood to our residents in Mora and San Miguel Counties,” said UMCOR/NHN Disaster Case Manager for Neighbors Helping Neighbors Janna Lopez, “This gives residents a bit of relief to allow them to buy more wood for the winter.”
Wood will be distributed to the most in need individuals and families starting next week.
