Del Norte Credit Union Gives Holiday Shoppers A Chance To Win $1,000

Española, Rio Arriba and Pojoaque Residents who choose to SHOP LOCAL will be entered in the giveaway.

ESPAÑOLA, NM – Del Norte Credit Union and KDCE are celebrating the Holidays and are giving back in a big way to residents and businesses in the Valley. Sixteen local merchants signed up to be part of DNCU’s First Annual Holiday Giveaway, designed to reward residents for shopping local.

Shoppers who make a minimum purchase of $25 or more at any of the participating merchants between December 10 and December 20 will be entered into the $1,000 Giveaway scheduled on December 21 at 11a.m. The Del Norte Credit Union location at 1216 Paseo De Oñate will pick the winner—winners need not be present to win. If you are a locally owned business and would like to participate, please contact KDCE directly at 505-982-4444 by December 14.

“We value the notion that when we help our local small business owners during this time of year, everyone wins,” says DNCU CEO/President Chuck Valenti. “We want shoppers to choose from sixteen very worthy local shops in Española and Pojoaque, but we also remind shoppers that there are hundreds of other local businesses that depend on us to contribute and make it a season to remember.”

The employees of Del Norte Credit Union believe that their mission to improve lives across Northern New Mexico extends to the small- and medium-sized local businesses that provide jobs and economic growth for the region. DNCU is a financial (co)operative that operates with the understanding that local service mirrors our values and the giving spirit of credit unions.

“The Holiday Giveaway will also present a $300 check to one of the lucky businesses for their commitment to the community and the spirit of the Holidays,” says DNCU VP of Marketing Kim Currie. “We value the amazing work that business-owners across the region do for their families and the community at large.
