Trent with San Luis Colcha Embroidery Stitching Group. January 2024.

Hello and howdy. 

I wanted to write this post to introduce myself as the new Communications and Marketing Manager at HEART of Saguache. My name is Trent Segura and longtime Saguache residents might have known my Grandpa, Vicente Segura who used to live on 10th and Denver. I was born and raised in and around Denver but Saguache and the San Luis Valley have always been a very special place to me. My greatest memories were coming to Saguache as a little kid, camping in my grandpa’s yard, and watching all the deer in town.

As the newest member to the HEART of Saguache team I hope to elevate the voices of the Valley and ensure our message resonates clearly and powerfully within the region and beyond.

Thank you. I look forward to getting to know you all.

The holiday season brings cheer and warmth, but for many, it also brings challenges, especially when it comes to accessing essential needs like food. Many residents, especially students who rely on school for meals and seniors, find it increasingly difficult to manage the financial strains of the holiday season. With rising food costs and reduced food assistance, the need for community support is more significant than ever. Saguache Sharing Christmas aims to alleviate this hardship by providing food assistance to families and individuals in need within Saguache County. 

In 2022, The Saguache Sharing Christmas initiative was able to provide boxes of food to 150 families in Saguache and the surrounding areas. In 2023, Saguache Sharing Christmas was able to extend its support to more than 200 households across the county. 

The 2023 Saguache Sharing Christmas took place in partnership between HEART of Saguache and Saguache County Department of Social Services, with generous financial support from the Saguache County Sales Tax Grant, Aventa Credit Union Foundation, and First Southwest Bank Foundation. 

We are endlessly grateful to all our volunteers, without whom none of this would be possible. We want to express our gratitude to the following organizations and people:

Jody Abeyta and the Mountain Valley School Leadership Team

Silver & Adam Sandoval

Louise Rodriguez

Melissa Aguirre

HEART of Saguache’s Health Equity Youth Alliance (HEYA)

Anthony Salaz

Dominic Velasquez

Saguache Sharing Christmas is more than just a gesture of goodwill; it's a crucial support system for the community. We are grateful to belong to a community that comes together to help those in need.
