Business of the Month
La Casa Family Health Center was named Business of the Month for June for the numerous ways they have stepped up for the community during the pandemic. They have hosted drive-thru emergency food distributions, provided free employee COVID-19 testing and are operating the Free Summer Lunch Program. Their employees have also actively supported the Roosevelt County Complete Count Commitee.
Volunteer of the Month
The Roosevelt County Chamber of Commerce named the Portales Municpal Schools Food Services staff as Volunteers of the Month for June. The workers came in early each morning after the schools were closed down by the pandemic to prepare thousands of “Grab and Go” breakfasts for students without access to lunch programs. The effort in pivoting the program went smoothly and their service after others were sent home made them champs.
