ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Two weeks ago, Make-A-Wish New Mexico was the victim of a break-in but on Monday, they’re getting a check to help make up for the damage. Chisolm Trail RV raised money all year for local charities including $10,000 put aside for a local firefighter union.

However, Albuquerque Area Fighters IAFF Local 244 said that right now, Make-A-Wish has a greater need so they talked to Chisolm and decided to donate the money to the organization. “It’s just the right thing to do at the end of the day and if we can help in any way, shape or form we continue to do it; We helped with COVID, we helped with Make-A-Wish,” said Erin Chisolm.

The 501st Legion, a local Star Wars fan organization, also donated $2,500 to Make-A-Wish. The thief in the incident got away with roughly $5,000 worth of items. The Albuquerque Police Department is still investigating.
