Freeport-McMoRan’s North America Community Development team moved its 10 community meetings to a virtual space earlier this year when they could not be held in person due to social distancing precautions for large groups.
Each quarter, Community Partnership Panels provide a forum for representatives from the community and Freeport-McMoRan to discuss the status of the business and site operations, address any questions or concerns, and encourage dialogue related to community needs, challenges and possible solutions.
In March 2019, the Freeport-McMoRan Foundation awarded a $65,000 grant to be used toward much-needed preservation work at the cemetery in Dawson, New Mexico. Hundreds of miners were laid to rest in the early 1900s at the cemetery, which is on the National Register of Historic Places.
Preservation work included a new fence to keep animals such as cattle and elk from damaging the headstones, a new drainage system and general maintenance.

Almost 16 percent of the diverse New Mexico population is food insecure. Roadrunner serves all 33 New Mexican counties across the state—with the majority of people living in rural areas—making it increasingly difficult to distribute food to those in need.
