Nearly $1 million in United Way of Northern New Mexico designations and allocations went to its member agencies this year from the 2009 campaign that ended Dec. 31.
“We really appreciate the generosity of the community, Los Alamos National Laboratory employees and the Los Alamos National Security (LANS) dollar for dollar match,” said United Way Executive Director Donna Schroeder in an interview this morning. “We are so grateful to all of these selfless donors who make it possible for us to continue to fund our member agencies. Our member agencies provide so many important services to people in need in Los Alamos and Rio Arriba counties.”
Campaign Chair Ralph Damiani said it was great to see so much money going to the local agencies but that the need remains great.
“As we start the 2010 campaign we hope to focus more on the community aspect of the donations and we hope that we can see an even larger portion of the donations stay right here in our region,” he said.
In 1953, Lew Allbee, chairman of the local Kiwanis Community Affairs Committee, invited a speaker from the national Chest organization to talk to representatives of clubs and organizations in Los Alamos.
