Tell us a little about yourself!
My name is Chandler Elmore, and I am in the third week of being a Community Development and Engagement Lead (fancy words for Public Relations) at a Wyoming Credit Union.
A quick little background about me - I have a wife that is studying for her masters of Speech Language Pathology at University of Wyoming, I like to pretend that I am a long distance runner, and have a really lazy persnickety cat named Ace.
I am working from home like the rest of the world and am thinking about getting a new picture or art piece to stare at instead of a blank wall in front of my computer.
Tell us about your #MakeWaves project.I want to give it to an organization that is helping the rural communities that are, in my opinion, being under served or left behind.
That is why I would make a donation to the Mountain Family Center (MFC) in Granby Coloardo.
Granby has a population of less that 2,500 and not a large economy outside of tourism. With that all of shut down, a lot of families are hurting for basics like keeping the lights on and food. MFC says that $1=4 meals so $100 would be 400 meals to those directly in need of it during these pressing times.
Who inspired you?
The community of Granby Colorado. My Credit Union has a matching program that will double the impact of any donations made to MFC.
So, in a way, my job inspired me to try to expand my reach. I am not affiliated with MFC nor live in Granby, I just see it as an undeserved area that needs help just like other small town communities.
