DA D’Antonio Plays Santa Claus to Foster Kids

District Attorney Mark D’Antonio and employees with the 3rd Judicial District Attorney’s Office are playing Santa Claus to dozens of foster kids this holiday season.

By partnering with Crescent Electric, Mesilla Valley CASA and Oñate High School’s baseball program, victim advocates with the district attorney’s office were able to collect and distribute hundreds of toys to more than 90 kids.

D’Antonio said, “The kids benefitting from this initiative have faced difficult times but thanks to the generosity of my staff and our community, we’re giving them a joyful holiday experience.”

In addition to receiving gifts, 92 kids were given stockings filled with holiday treats.

This is the fifth time officials with the district attorney’s office have partnered with Oñate High School’s baseball program and Mesilla Valley CASA.  It also marks the first time they’ve partnered with Crescent Electric.
