LANL subcontractor supports the region: SOC
Day & Zimmermann’s SOC Los Alamos organization, a Lab major subcontractor and supplier of security services, takes its commitment to the regional community so seriously that last year it hired Liddie Martinez as its full-time Community& Economic Development Director. Through these efforts, SOC was able to provide more than $55,000 in direct financial contributions to various efforts, and Martinez also supported a number of organizations through her time and expertise.
Martinez supports several efforts, such as the Los Alamos National Laboratory Foundation (where she is board president), Wreaths Across America, the Northern New Mexico College Board, Accelerate New Mexico Board, and the Lab's Major Subcontracting Consortium. Her involvement totaled more than 900 hours of support during the year.
The company’s financial giving has benefited numerous organizations across the economic development, education, and giving sectors, including Leadership New Mexico, Think New Mexico, The Family YMCA, and many others. The organization’s employees do their part by volunteering at area schools, fundraisers, youth organizations, and community organizations such as the Santa Clara Fire Department.
The work is done as part of the Lab’s requirement for all contractors with subcontracts of $5 million or more to create and implement a Regional Community Development Plan.
