Lab: Employees pledge record $2.13 million

Los Alamos National Laboratory employees have again demonstrated concern for their communities and those in need by pledging a record $2.13 million to United Way and other eligible nonprofit programs.

Los Alamos National Security, LLC, which manages and operates the Laboratory for the National Nuclear Security Administration, plans to prorate its $1 million match among the selected nonprofit organizations, bringing the total donation to $3.1 million.

“I am again touched by the generosity of our employees,” said Los Alamos Director Charlie McMillan. “In a challenging year for the Laboratory, they have come through for Northern New Mexico. It speaks to their pride in where they work and live.”

“I am truly impressed with the level of participation we achieved during this year’s employee giving campaign. The leadership and dedication across the lab in supporting the campaign along with all the special events, really made a difference,” said Paul Henry, Los Alamos’s principal associate director for Capital Projects and this year’s campaign champion.

“The employees at the Lab should be very proud of the fact that we achieved 21 percent participation and raised more than $3.1 million.”

Laboratory employee contributions will fund a wide range of programs offered by eligible nonprofit organizations.
