Morning Star's Mission Team

The Mission Team at Morning Star has been a key part of alleviating suffering in the city of Las Cruces, the county of Doña Ana, the state of New Mexico and the rest of the world we all live in. The projects have been many and the impact significant. 

$1's & $5's

Since its inception, the $1s & $5s Campaign has raised almost $10,000 since January of 2018. Most, if not all, of the donations less than $5. There has been abundant giving as well that has gone on to be multiplied and to help multiply the impact of the work that has been done, is being done and will be done.
