United Way of Northern New Mexico Executive Director Kristy Ortega wrote the following appeal to donors.
“The United Way of Northern New Mexico is approximately one quarter of the way to the amount asked for by non-profits in our community and we need your help.
“Last year, because of investments to the UWNNM Community Action Fund, our neighbor Kathy was able to change her life and the life of her family for the better. She is just one example of the over 10,000 people you helped.
“If you are an employee of Los Alamos National Laboratory, please do not forget to log in to your Oracle to make your pledge. We are grateful to LANS/LANL for their continued Community Investment in UWNNM and to their employees for being the heroes through contributions to the UWNNM Community Action Fund.
“If you are able, we ask you to give. Contributions can be made online at unitedwaynnm.org, or you can find pledge envelopes at the following locations:
• Los Alamos National Bank
• Fusion Multisport
• Ruby K's Bagel Café
“And a reminder, pledges of $100 or more get entered into the drawing for the Helicopter Rides courtesy of Classic Air Medical.
“Thank you for your continued support!”
The LANL United Way campaign ends Nov. 20.
UWNNM encourages donations to their Community Action Fund year-round, but donations must be received by the end of the year to impact the spring cycle of grant awards.
