I am excited to share with you the story of a man who is changing lives for the better in my small hometown. His work with kids in Espanola, where he has created a multi-tiered program - food, tutoring, mentoring, fitness programs, counselling - for kids and their families has spanned decades. He is combating the drug epidemic in profound ways, helping young people find a way out of drugs and/or poverty. By winning this award, Roger’s program will receive new funding.
Here are a few links for background on Roger, his programs and where to vote. Remember, you can vote daily through 12/3.
