During the year-end celebration, AHCH Board President-Elect Ron Moya said, “If you take a look around this table, you see people here not for their own glory, but are here for the public good.” That’s probably what has made this celebration so impactful, and so inspiring over the years. “It’s a single room filled with donors who all give to Albuquerque Health Care for the Homeless and who all have a vision to end homelessness,” said AHCH Advancement Officer Anita Cordova. She also emphasized philanthropy is a love of humankind and a voluntary joining of resources and actions for the public good.
