ConocoPhillips | May 2022NEW MEXICO – ConocoPhillips recently announced $100,000 to be allocated to the All Together NM Fund and other relief agencies in support of New Mexico’s wildfire disaster relief efforts. The All Together NM Fund was established in 2020 by the New Mexico Coalition of Community Foundations in conjunction with the Governor’s office to help New Mexico respond to and eventually recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. The All Together NM Fund has now been reactivated to coordinate statewide relief for the ongoing wildfires.
ConocoPhillips’ donation will directly support emergency shelter, food and water distribution and other critical disaster relief services. “More than 23,000 people are currently displaced from their homes and are in need of meals, water and shelter,” said JoAnn Melchor, president & CEO of the New Mexico Foundation. “We are working to quickly disburse funds to our nonprofit partners to meet these needs on the ground.”
Tens of thousands of people remain threatened by the fire. “All Together New Mexico is committed to working with our community partners and members to respond to disasters ranging from COVID to devastating wildfires,” said Lisa O’Brien Foundation Director of Taos Community Foundation. “We couldn’t do it without the generosity of our amazing donors – like ConocoPhillips. With their support, All Together New Mexico can enable communities to prepare for the unexpected, and when disaster strikes, to respond with shelter, food and the necessary supplies to ensure people are cared for and to help during the recovery process. We are extremely grateful for their support.”
“As a long-time New Mexico operator with many employees in the state, our thoughts are with those affected by the ongoing wildfire,” said ConocoPhillips Lower 48 Executive Vice President Jack Harper. “We want to thank the emergency responders and volunteers for their ongoing efforts, and organizations like the All Together NM Fund for efficiently directing our donation to those who need it most.”
