Volunteer of the Month
Staff and volunteers of the Wesley Foundation, the Methodist Church student ministry at ENMU, were named Volunteers of the Month for November. The Wesley has taken on the mission of caring for ENMU’s community of international students, who have struggled during the pandemic closures. Left without the ability to work because of visa restrictions, many have struggled with food insecurity, rent and other needs. The Wesley Foundation’s Director Elizabeth Kirkwood along with student volunteers Daniel Ziegler, Fofoga Luamanuvae and Aniva Simanu have raised donations to buy food and kept students connected with other resources to keep them safe. Hats off to this international cast right here in Portales!
