ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - Breakfast for Badges is giving residents the chance to help families of fallen officers with some good food.
Active and retired public safety members are invited to grab a free donut and coffee from 6-10 a.m. Wednesday. Police, fire, EMS, military: everyone is invited.
From now until Wednesday, November 6th, $1 from every dozen donuts bought will go to The One Hundred Club of New Mexico, Inc. That organization gives aid to families of fallen firefighters and law enforcement officers.
The Isotopes will also donate one ticket voucher to a home game this season to anyone who purchases a dozen donuts or makes a cash donation.
“We just want to make them feel we appreciate what they do all day long to protect us citizens of New Mexico,” Tahir Gauba, Co-owner of Donut Mart, said.
There will be donation jars set up on the counters inside the Donut Mart.
