Give Grandly 2023
The Mimbres Valley Health Action League (MVHAL)’s participation in Grant County’s Annual Give Grandly fundraising event coordinated by the Grant County Community Foundation Giving Day event was an unmitigated success. MVHAL’s fundraising goal was $5,000, and although the final tally isn’t in yet, we raised $4773.00.
Seventy-four (74) supporters in approximately 14 states provided support for MVHAL’s programs. MVHAL is deeply grateful to all who offered financial and moral support and we offer the sincerest “Thank You” on behalf of the Mimbres Valley residents who will benefit from the generosity of our supporters!
MVHAL’s mission is to improve the health, well-being, and quality of life for the people of the Mimbres Region (defined as the communities that lie along and around NM State Hwy 61 and 35) by supporting local programs that promote healthy food for all, community bonding, and improved access to health care—in particular for our elderly and very young. Scroll down to see the wonderful projects we support!
A Brief History
MVHAL was established in 2002 with the help of Hildago Medical Service (HMS) and local residents interested in enhancing the quality of life in the Mimbres Valley through locally-based programs focused on health and well-being for all ages. MVHAL’s Board of Directors meets monthly and holds its Annual Meeting for all members in April each year.
Mimbres Messenger Monthly Newspaper
The Mimbres Messenger is the monthly “written voice” of the goings-on in our valley. It’s an invaluable resource for reporting what has happened, what to see, and what’s coming up the month ahead. This month’s issue and all back issues, going back to April 2014, are available at the link below.
Mimbres Food Distribution
MVHAL has been a part of the monthly food distribution program to households in the valley since its inception in 2004. We partner with the Roadrunner Food Bank of New Mexico
Mimbres Farmers Market
The Mimbres Valley Farmers’ Market provides an outlet for growers to sell fresh and nutritious locally grown food to their neighbors. The Market fosters direct connections and bonds between farmers and shoppers.
Mimbres Valley Harvest Festival
The Mimbres Valley Harvest Festival is held each autumn and is a way to bring our community together. The Festival showcases locally grown food, local artisans, and handmade products. Thanks to Covid-19, in 2020 and 2021, the festival did not happen.
We are happy to say, the Mimbres Harvest Festival is back! 2022 was a great festival, and 2023 should be even better.
