2020 Annual Report: People Helping People

Education Provides Hope for Sick Children

In 2020, SLFCU continued with our commitment to raise $200,000 over the next few years on behalf of the New Mexico Credit Unions Connected Academy (NMCUCA) to endow a fund to provide a long-term teaching position at UNM Children’s Hospital through the Mimbres School. Together, SLFCU employees, members, and community partners raised $121,418 between July 1, 2019 and December 31, 2020.

NMCUCA by the numbers: $121,418 raised between July 1, 2019 and  December 31, 2020.

Monica Garcia-Roach, Lead Special Educator at UNM Mimbres School, says, “We have 19 students enrolled from K-12th grade, but that’s not all! In our first year, we helped more than 80 patients and their siblings complete 3,000 classwork assignments and activities. Our students gain socialization skills, help each other with homework, and form friendships that transcend long absences.”

“The devotion of the UNMCH students to academics is amazing!” says Jeremy P. Abshire, Superintendent and Principal at UNM Mimbres School. “I’ve been an educator for more than 20 years, but I’ve never seen students like these. They know how learning can be a distraction from the discomfort, enable pathways to true friendship, and provide hope for a better future.”

Monica adds, “I’m fortunate to be their teacher. They’ve taught me about the value of life and how important effective communication skills are in a virtual world. This is not just a school, and the students are not just classmates – we are family. I’m so grateful to SLFCU and the other credit unions who fund the NMCUCA program and make all of this possible.” Visit slfcu.org/NMCUCA to learn more about this cause.
