  • Auction helps raise funds for trip

    Youth and their sponsors from the United Church of Los Alamos will  attempt to raise funds for a week-long stay near the beaches of Puerto Peñasco, Mexico, but the effort isn’t being done for a spring break vacation, although the time spent could be fun.
    The fundraising is part of the 27th annual Mexico Mission trip to build homes for needy families.
    A silent and live auction will be held today to raise the money needed to cover a variety of costs for the trip.
    “The auction raises money that we send to Amor Ministries,” said Laura Erickson, the trip co-chair. “They provide the camp facility and have all the building materials ready for us when we arrive.”
