Recognizing employee and retiree volunteer efforts

LOS ALAMOS, N.M., Sept. 21, 2015—More than 225 nonprofit organizations received $162,650 from Los Alamos National Security, LLC, which manages Los Alamos National Laboratory. The LANS contributions are determined by the number of volunteer hours logged by Laboratory employees and retirees through an organization called VolunteerMatch.

“The genuine care and commitment Laboratory employees and retirees have for their communities are clearly demonstrated by the number of hours volunteered to these nonprofit organizations,” said Kathy Keith, director of Los Alamos’ Community Programs Office, which oversees the volunteer program.

In 2014, Laboratory employees and retirees logged 282,268 hours of volunteer service. Since the Laboratory joined VolunteerMatch in 2007, Los Alamos employees and retirees reported more than 1.8 million volunteer hours.
