Charitable giving and its importance to the community were highlighted during an interview Friday with Jerry Ethridge, staff manager for the associate director for weapons physics at Los Alamos National Laboratory.
In March, Ethridge was elected president of the Board of Trustees for the United Way of Northern New Mexico serving Los Alamos and Rio Arriba counties.
Under his leadership, the nonprofit organization successfully completed its annual fundraising campaign in November raising more than $2 million - an increase of more than $200,000 over the previous year.
During United Way's recent campaign recognition dinner, Ethridge thanked a group of special donors for increasing their giving by some 30 percent.
"I'm really pleased that while we're seeing a decline in the number of givers, at the same time we are seeing an increase in the amount of the donations we're receiving," he said. "I'd like to encourage more interest on the part of the community - the non-laboratory segment."
