Valley Homes celebrates anniversary with $10,000 donation to Mesilla Valley Community of Hope


Valley Homes, a manufactured home retailer in Las Cruces, celebrated its second anniversary Nov. 2 by donating $10,000 to Mesilla Valley Community of Hope (MVCH), MVCH Executive Director Nicole Martinez said.

Valley Homes owners Craig Bullock and Elizabeth Driggers were on hand to present their donation, along with their two children, Jack and Maggie, to Martinez at MVCH.

“Just like the Community of Hope, we’re invested in upward mobility for our neighbors and we’re proud to celebrate our second anniversary by supporting the incredible work MVCH does in our community,” Bullock said. “My wife and I were born and raised in New Mexico, and we look forward to raising our two children here as well. We’re fortunate to be in the position to help out, especially as we head into the holidays and the season of giving."

“MVCH is beyond grateful and will help many people with shelter and housing efforts with the gift,” Martinez said.
