Auction to fund humanitarian trip

-A A +A
By Bernadette Lauritzen

Two days of heavy driving, five days of heavy labor and three homes to show for those in need, that is the definition of service, for the annual United Church of Los Alamos Mexico Mission trip.
The long-standing trip has been joined by their neighbors from the Unitarian Universalist Church, a few community members and off they go — to do good deeds for their fellow man.
Laura Erickson and husband Randy have seen the process through decades of service and coordinate the effort each and every year. There are many highlights for the duo as they have seen neighborhoods born of their efforts. Last year, camper Laura found a new one to love or a few new ones.
“Probably my favorite part was watching how our fellow campers from the Unitarian Universalist Church dove right in and became family,” said Erickson. “Their enthusiasm was contagious!”
Once you go on a Mexico Mission trip, you do indeed, “catch the bug,” and then are hooked on changing lives, one week at a time.
As part of the process, the team needs to raise approximately $14,000, to build three homes in one week, all during the Los Alamos Public Schools spring break vacation time.
This weekend, a silent and live auction, supported by local businesses and the donations of friends and strangers will go a long way in making that happen.
