In the early morning of Saturday, March 28, seven businesses in Los Alamos were broken into and vandalized.
The Los Alamos Chamber of Commerce has set up an account at Enterprise Bank & Trust to help these businesses pay insurance deductibles and out of pocket expenses to get their damage repaired.
This account will be open until 5 p.m. April 13. After that all funds will be divided evenly between China Palace, Daniel’s Cafe, Gracie Barra Los Alamos Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Petree Garden Center and Florist, Subway, Top Nail Salon and Viola’s.
Note: This account is created to help the businesses directly. Do not confuse this account with the LA Crime Stopper reward account set up to encourage information leading to the identity or arrest of the culprits.
Small businesses all over Los Alamos are facing the challenges from the COVID-19 restrictions. But these seven businesses now face the additional financial hardship of insurance deductibles and repairs. These businesses are a valuable part of our community and need our support.
The Los Alamos community stands in solidarity with these business owners against this crime. Please join the Los Alamos Commerce & Development Corporation (LACDC), the Los Alamos Chamber and Los Alamos MainStreet in supporting these businesses during this difficult time.
The LACDC has established an account at Enterprise Bank & Trust to accept donations. Note the “LA Small Business Support Fund” in your deposit request.
Thank you for supporting our local businesses.
