“For the last 5 years, the people of southern New Mexico have allowed Tawney, Acosta & Chaparro P.C. to represent them in some of the most serious and catastrophic injury cases in the region. Every year our firm tries to say thank you by giving back to the community that has put their trust in us. We know that 2020 has been an extremely tough year so we wanted to step up to help more families. Our firm donated $10,000 in matching money to the Community Foundation of Southern New Mexico and Casa de Peregrinos to provide meals for families in need. We are grateful that on Giving Tuesday, members of our generous community joined our efforts and contributed an additional $10,000. With these funds, we will be able provide for more families than ever before at the Tawney, Acosta & Chaparro P.C. Annual Turkey Giveaway, which will take place on December 19th, 2020.” – James Tawney.
The $10,000 match was met and $20,000 will go to supplying food for more families in need within the community. In addition, a match was given by the Tawney family in collaboration with the Devasthali Family Fund.
At the end of the day, the Community Foundation of Southern New Mexico’s Giving Tuesday raised over $47,000 for community nonprofits.
