Valiery Meza Wants to Help the Community of El Paso!

By Catina Henley on November 2, 2022

Valiery Meza Never lose hope

On October 10, 2022, “Never Too Late” celebrated its one-year anniversary. It was founded by Valiery Meza and this nonprofit is on the rise in El Paso, TX.

“What makes us different is that here at Never Too Late, our team is passionate about making a real impact in our community by providing care kits to those in need. We also have trained service dogs that we take with us and the kids just adore them, they bring so much joy to them.”

Valiery is what we like to call a Local Biz Hero, a self-made entrepreneur who brings true value to her community. High stands of professionalism and strong work ethics of small business owners like Valiery are the infrastructure of the El Paso economy.

Never Too Late works with many local businesses to help support the people in need in their community. Valiery believes that without the support of her team and local businesses, she would never have gotten this far.

We sat down with Valiery for a quick interview

Why do you do what you do?

“I was born in El Paso, Texas and raised in Dallas. I grew up with both parents in my life till the age of 15 when my father decided to unexpectedly leave. My mom was left with all of the responsibilities of my 3 additional siblings at the time and struggled to feed us. But she managed to take care of all our needs without us realizing what was happening.

At the time I didn’t understand what struggling was until we lost our house and were on the streets until my great-grandmother and grandmother worked hard, and took care of us in anything we needed. My mother worked endless hours and sometimes we didn’t see her that much.

My family moved to El Paso and after moving from school to school there was always this desire to help other people with what little I had. I would share my food with kids who didn’t have food and that grew to creating clubs to help the community.

From there I decided to work in the medical field because I always admired how hard they worked and their drive to help people. During this course of my life, I felt like I wanted to be able to have a greater impact in my community so I started business school so I could pursue opening my own non-profit.

I wanted to help the kids who couldn’t control their situation as well as help the moms that do their best despite their situations. I love my community. The people there are so very loving and I wanted to start there.”

What type of help do you provide?

“We put together care kits that contain personal care items and bring them to our local shelters. We also provide book bags filled with personal care items, socks, mittens, stuffed animals – things that kids would like to have. We also try to complete the shelter’s wish list of supplies when we have our drop days.

Who are some of your local supporters?

“Currently we receive support from Walmart, 5 Below, The Shack Wings & Brews, EP Fitness and other local small businesses.”

If you could share one tip with the readers who wanted to start a nonprofit, what would it be?

“Well, it would be to find people with the same goals and passions to help you along the way.

The start was rough and I don’t know if I would have made it without having a team of people around me that shared my same passions. Now that I can see the impact and difference we are making, it has all been worth it.”

 

Never Too Late Inc will have special kits this month for Halloween, so make sure you contact them to find out if they have any available.
