The Clovis/Curry County Chamber of Commerce Library Victim Advocacy Fund Committee met on Friday, September 29 and authorized a Library Victim Unmet Needs Grant to the United Way of Eastern New Mexico in the amount of $30,000. 

United Way of Eastern New Mexico (UWENM) presented a proposal to assist with unmet needs related to victims of the Clovis/Carver Public Library Shooting.  United Way has partnered with the 9th Judicial District Attorney Victim's Advocate Program and Matt 25.  Together the group will identify, review and distribute funding for unmet needs related to the victims of the library shooting.  All funds allocated to United Way will go directly to victims. The grant agreement and transfer of funds will take place next week.  United Way will be able to move forward assisting victims quickly utilizing the expertise of UWENM staff and partners. 

The committee will meet again in November to review proposals for a Victim Memorial. A special thank you to all who donated to the fund. Victims should contact UWENM at (575) 769-2103 for any further information.
