Pecos Elementary School third-graders perform during a National Dance Institute (NDI) of New Mexico assembly earlier this month.

NMCF awarded a grant to NDI-New Mexico for its Dancing for Health program at Pecos Elementary.

The grant was made from NMCF’s Northeastern Regional Community Fund, which provides support to organizations in San Miguel, Mora, Guadalupe, Colfax, Harding, Union, and Quay counties that provide health awareness and disease prevention.

First Born of Northern New Mexico also received a grant from the Northeastern Regional Community Fund to increase health and wellness of women pregnant for the first time, families parenting for the first time, and families adopting their first baby.
