Help Kids Better Their Lives by Voting for a Local Hero

Posted by Elle Seybold on Wednesday, November 13th, 2019 at 10:52am.

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.
