United Way of Northern New Mexico (UWNNM) received a generous donation of $25,000 from N3B, Tuesday, Nov. 1 in front of the Los Alamos Post Office.

N3B is the federal contractor that conducts legacy environmental cleanup at Los Alamos National Laboratory for the U.S. Department of Energy Environmental Management Los Alamos Field Office.

“N3B addresses the environmental legacy of historical operations at Los Alamos National Laboratory — investigating and  remediating contamination — to protect future generations.” 

“We are pleased to use our Community Commitment funds to donate to UWNNM, whose core mission to advocate for people in Rio Arriba and Los Alamos counties, we greatly admire and relate to.” N3B Vice President and Executive Officer Joe Legare said. 

Together, N3B and UWNNM took photos in front of the United Way thermometer for the Community Action Fund. United Way of Northern New Mexico was founded in 1954 and has raised  funds for local communities ever since. This thermometer has been displayed around Los Alamos for decades, and this year has been upgraded to a standing thermometer with sand, donated by Hand  Precision Machining, Inc. after years of being a cardboard or plastic sign. 

UWNNM’s goal to raise $500,000 for next year’s nonprofit grantees has been largely contrived by the  generous donations from companies around Los Alamos, such as N3B, and has reached more than $430,000 thus far. As UWNNM continues to raise funds in efforts to reach half a million dollars by Jan. 1, they ask that anyone interested in donating or becoming a nonprofit grantee visit UnitedWayNNM.org

Grant requests are being accepted until Dec. 1. Donations are always accepted and appreciated.

To donate to UWNNM and its future nonprofits, visit UnitedWayNNM.org or UnitedWayNNM.org for more information about how to apply and submit the 2023 Grantee Application Form.
