UWNNM News:

The LANL Employee Giving Campaign and Los Alamos County Employee Campaign fundraising campaigns are winding down.

Both giving campaigns are up this year thanks to the work of Kathy Keith and Debbi Wersonick of LANL’s Community Programs Office and United Way Campaign Chair Troy Hughes. They joined United Way to raise the Community Action Fund Thermometer to more than $424,000.

“We are truly grateful for the work CPO and Troy have done this year. We look forward to working with them on showing investors how fundraising is making an impact in 2016,” UWNNM Executive Director Kristy Ortega said. “Thank you all who have given so far.  There will be nonprofit tours throughout 2016 so you can have an opportunity to see how your investment in the community is making an impact on many lives.”

LANL and LANS as organizations also invest in critical community needs that enable United Way to strengthen local nonprofits and work on filling gaps in crucial areas.
