Thank You for Being with Us!

Hello Fair West neighbors,

We need your help to continue with Scary Supper, Ice Cream Social, Park Luminarias and other community projects. The FWNA hasn’t been as active during the Covid 19 pandemic, which has left our funds low.

WE ARE ACCEPTING DONATIONS NOW

If you would like to help contribute please consider the suggested $15.00. However your contribution in any amount is always appreciated. There are 2 ways to give to FWNA!

ONLINE

Visit our website at abqfairwest.org and use our PayPal link.

Please make sure to share your contact information with your name and street address when making your contribution through PayPal. We have been working on updating our database with the goal to be able to contact you to both confirm your valuable contribution, and to say Thank You!

CASH and CHECKS

We are gladly accepting payments in person too. Please contact Anita Shenkman at ashenkman125@comcast.net to coordinate.

THANK YOU!

We appreciate those who have given through PayPal, with cash, or by check. We miss you and are looking forward to having you back!

We can’t do this without you
—your Fair West neighbors
