Elephant Butte Balloon Regatta
White Sands FCU was proud to be one of the sponsors of the 37th Annual Elephant Butte Balloon Regatta on August 19 and 20. The event featured over 18 hot air balloons that took to the air over Elephant Butte Lake.
School Supply Drives
Congratulations to Ms. Delgado, a 3rd grade bilingual education teacher at Rio Grande Elementary. Ms. Delgado and her class were very happy to receive the donation of school supplies and she assured us it would be put to good use. Ms. Delgado has been teaching for 17 years. These supplies were collected at White Sands FCU's N. Main branch in Las Cruces. Shown at right is Ms. Delgado (left) and White Sands FCU Assistant Branch Manager Nohemi Moran
A second supply drive at the Lohman branch netted numerous supplies that were sent to the Las Cruces Public Schools offices to distribute to needy kids. A big thank you to all members and employees who donated.
Lee & Beulah Moor Walk
The El Paso branch, indirect department, call center and EFT department participated in the Lee & Beulah Moor Children’s Home 15th Annual Walk/Run for Families in Crisis. Employees met early on the morning of June 3 at Sunland Park Racetrack. The credit union’s participation was sponsored by the El Paso Chapter of Credit Unions. The Lee & Beulah Moor Children’s Home supports El Paso children and families who are experiencing difficulty in their lives—for whatever reason—by providing a nurturing, positive environment and teaching self-respect, respect for others, and the importance of taking responsibility for one’s own decisions and actions.
Do A Good Deed
The employee run Do A Good Deed program gives credit union staff a chance to make a difference in their communities. Employees make donations to the Do a Good Deed program through payroll deduction, and an employee committee selects the recipients. Most recently, four organizations were able to benefit from our employee generosity.
MWR Families, Morale, Welfare and Recreation at White Sands Missile Range received $200 to assist them with a First Day of School event. At this event, which is held one week prior to school starting, all kids attending are given backpacks filled with school supplies for a good start to the school year.
The Junior ROTC at Hot Springs High School in Truth or Consequences was the beneficiary of $500. The organization used the donation for their annual Senior Lock-In held after graduation. Funds were used to purchase food, games, prizes and even award scholarships.
FYI Enterprise City Summer Camp in Las Cruces received a check for $500. The 7-week camp consists of youth ages 7-14 years old, who learn real life and career skills by operating and working in a mock city, including a restaurant, bank, retail store, media center, theater and a legal and judicial system.
White Sands Schools Robotics Team received $300. They will use the funds to offset expenses as the team travels to Louisville, Kentucky to compete at the Vex IQ World Championships.
