AFTER UNDERGOING SURGERY in Lubbock, Texas, Sandy Hammack is back at home on week earlier than planned. On Oct. 28 Hammack donated her kidney to her second cousin. Her cousin was diagnosed with chronic kidney failure with unknow causes. Hammack went through the testing procedures and happened to have the same blood type and good kidneys. After the three-hour surgery at Lubbock Methodist Hospital Hammack was supposed to stay 21 days in Lubbock for recovery. Since her condition was much better than expected she was able to come home a few days early and arrived on Sunday. Before going into surgery Hammack prepared herself by walking regularly and keeping herself active.

APPROXIMATELY 20 VOLUNTEERS from the community, ages 13 and up, came out to work in the community on Oct. 26 for Make a Difference Day, a National Day of Volunteerism. This it the first year the event has been held in Socorro. The event has been held nationally on the fourth Saturday of October every year for over two decades. Volunteers helped the Socorro County Senior Center with landscaping and grounds work needs, including painting benches and railings, as well as parking lot stripes and markings. Volunteers also painted at the Socorro Village, where a fence needed repainting. Members of the Socorro Boy Scout Troops assisted the Socorro Storehouse by collecting nonperishable foods at booths outside of local grocery stores.
