THE HISPANIC RESOURCE CENTER SEEKS SUPPORT FROM THE COMMUNITY
The Teton Valley Hispanic Resource Center is seeking the support of the community through the Tin Cup Challenge. The Giving Period ends on July 24th.
Since the Hispanic Resource Center’s foundation in 2008, the not-for-profit organization has been committed to fulfilling their mission to “promote cultural heritage, provide education opportunities, connect people to resources, and advocate within and for the Hispanic community.”
These have been trying times for the Hispanic community in our country. There has been a great amount of fear and uncertainty instilled by the current immigration policies and enforcement. The Hispanic Resource Center is dedicated to providing resources to help alleviate the burden imposed on our Teton Valley community members.
The Hispanic Resource Center provides, among other things, translating and interpreting services, assistance with immigration applications, social service assistance, and organizes yearly activities, events, and public forums, like the Día de los Muertos Week and the Herencia Hispana Folkloric Dance Group. In 2020, the Hispanic Resource Center has engaged in supporting the update of the Driggs Comprehensive Plan, as well as the Census. The organization is continuously seeking ways to increase outreach to the Hispanic community and the community of Teton Valley at large.
The Hispanic Resource Center board hopes to count on the support of the community during Tin Cup, and throughout the year. The Hispanic Resource Center will continue building bridges, and opportunities for community development. They invite the public to meet one-on-one, to share their gifts by volunteering with the organization, and to collaborate and partner with them through projects, and events.
