Christmas spirit alive, well in LA

-A A +A

Organizations throughout the community help less fortunate

By Carol A. Clark

Holiday sentiment blossoms this time of year as service clubs, churches, schools, businesses and county and laboratory employees focus on families and individuals in need.
 Bake sales are numerous. Families are adopted. Fund drives are held. Food, clothing and toys are collected. These compassionate gestures brighten the season for both receivers and givers.
A small sampling of the enormous amount of holiday spirit exhibited by members of the Los Alamos community include “snow angels” identified by the Betty Ehart Senior Center and White Rock Senior Center who provide snow removal for seniors throughout the county.
Also, Los Alamos County employees get in the spirit in a big way.
“I love to help people and that’s why I do this every year,” said Shirley Huber, a member of the county’s Employee Fund Committee since 1996.
Huber works in the Information Technology Department. She explained that the committee combines county departments into seven districts. Two employees from each district are on the committee. Each year around Thanksgiving time, the committee is contacted by a local sorority and given the information on families in need.
