FEMA assistance for NM Calf Fire
Mora Creative Council just received a check for $8,240 as a result of the T-shirt fundraiser designed by Mora community member, Trey Sprinkle. A portion of the funds will be sent to Ocate to help with the Cook’s Peak fire and the rest will help our Mora fire victims. We are grateful for the effort and will ensure the funds are used to help our community in the best way possible. Thank you to everyone who purchased shirts. Please wear them with Mora Pride!
