Los Alamos Community Generously Supports Vandalized Businesses



Over the last two weeks, the Los Alamos community has come out to generously support the seven businesses that were vandalized on March 28. Soon after the break-ins, Los Alamos Commerce and Development Corporation (LACDC) set up an account at Enterprise Bank and Trust to take donations that would assist these businesses in paying for their insurance deductibles and damages.

The account closed on April 13 and the funds will now be evenly distributed among China Palace, Daniel’s Cafe, Gracie Barra Los Alamos Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Petree Garden Center, Subway, Top Nail Salon and Viola’s. A separate reward account was set up by the Los Alamos Police Department for information leading to an arrest; they have reported the investigation is still ongoing.

The community can continue to safely support all Los Alamos County businesses impacted by pandemic-related closures by ordering takeout, choosing delivery, shopping local businesses online when available, and purchasing gift cards for use at a later time.

Los Alamos Commerce & Development Corporation (LACDC), the Los Alamos Chamber of Commerce and Los Alamos MainStreet thank Enterprise Bank & Trust for their assistance setting up the account and thank all of the Los Alamos community for supporting these businesses during this difficult time.
