El Paso Children’s Hospital Foundation honored with $50k grant from New York Life foundation

El Paso Children’s Hospital Foundation announced a $50,000 Love Takes Action Award from the New York Life Foundation.

“We are grateful for the New York Life Foundation’s investment in our organization and for Pablo Magdeleno Carlos, a New York Life Development Manager with the El Paso General Office, for recognizing Taylor Moreno, a Program Director for El Paso Children’s Hospital, for her work in the community during COVID-19, which brought about this grant, and will change many lives for the better,” said Estela Casas, Executive Director at El Paso Children’s Hospital Foundation.

Foundation officials say the grant will support compassionate, coordinated, family centered care for children in the Paso del Norte region. Funds will be used to help keep children right here at home for medical treatment without having to travel to other cities.

“I nominated Taylor Moreno because she selflessly gave back to the community during the pandemic and, as a result, El Paso Children’s Hospital Foundation was able to benefit from her need to take action and help others. She stepped up when her community needed her the most.” said Pablo Magdaleno Carlos, a New York Life employee.

Foundation officials share that Taylor spent her personal time and resources cooking for at-risk individuals and food-insecure families. At work, Taylor managed to find new and fun ways to virtually recognize supporters of El Paso Children’s Hospital Foundation and remain connected to her colleagues.

The Love Takes Action Award program awards $50,000 to local nonprofit organizations that are championed by New York Life agents and employees. Thirty-five community members from across the nation who embody Love Takes Action in response to the COVID-19 pandemic will be honored.

Each honoree selected a nonprofit to receive a $50,000 general support grant from the New York Life Foundation.
