Doug Pullen, formerly the entertainment writer for the El Paso Times, has joined the staff of the El Paso Community Foundation.
The El Paso Community Foundation was established in 1977 to foster philanthropy to address the unique opportunities and challenges of the El Paso, southern New Mexico and Ciudad Juárez region. Today, the El Paso Community Foundation provides a wide-range of philanthropic services in the region as a grant maker, convener and leadership organization to the community.
Janice Windle, El Paso Community Foundation executive, speaks to a group of middle school students at Wiggs Middle School about the region’s rich history and the work of the Foundation.
