SANTA FE—Del Norte Credit Union (DNCU) announced its support of the Kiwanis Club of Los Alamos and its annual Breakfast with Santa fundraising event. DNCU personnel presented a $1,500 check to the Kiwanis Club at its Dec. 1 lunch meeting.
“We are honored to partner with the Kiwanis Club of Los Alamos for this fun community event celebrating the holidays,” says DNCU CEO/President Chuck Valenti. “In addition, it is important to our mission of improving lives that the Kiwanis Club in turn supports northern New Mexico families in need.”
Proceeds from the Breakfast with Santa fundraiser support programs for foster children.
The Kiwanis Club of Los Alamos has held its pancake Breakfast with Santa for more than 30 years, and as many as 800 community members have attended the fundraising event. DNCU employees support the event as well by volunteering to serve at the Saturday morning breakfast. Children attending the event get to speak with Santa and have their picture taken with him.
This year’s Breakfast is 7-11 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 5 at the Betty Ehart Senior Center, 1000 Oppenheimer Dr. in Los Alamos.
