The Riverdale Press: Gonzalo Duran Plays Santa

Before operating as the CEO of Devil Dog USA Incorporated, I was a father trying to give my children a good memory by playing Santa Claus for Christmas. Once I came home from the service, I continued that tradition for the neighborhood children. Once I became a CEO, I started doing it for anyone who asked but focused my attention to those that needed it most in the community.

This past Christmas season, I played Santa 15 times. Besides holding Toy Drives to help other organizations, I also lobbied for our organization’s Christmas event. Our specific event catered more towards the homeless and those in shelters. Our goal was to give them a good memory.

We used the Military, Veterans, and the community all working together to give those families in need, a good holiday memory, a lovely time and a Christmas to remember.
