As this year’s institutional champion for Los Alamos National Laboratory’s Employee Giving Campaign, I am proud that Laboratory employees and Los Alamos National Security (LANS), LLC again have shown their support for northern New Mexico by pledging a record-breaking amount to regional nonprofit organizations dedicated to improving our communities’ quality of life.

Over the last seven years our employees and LANS have invested more than $20 million in nonprofit initiatives, and the Employee Giving Campaign this fall adds another almost 3.2 million. As part of a larger network of community partnerships, these contributions are meant to provide building blocks for stronger communities.

We are committed to partnering with nonprofit projects that address short- and long-term goals. Food pantries, after-school services, eldercare, safe havens from domestic violence, animal shelters and job training, for example, can provide many with cornerstones for a brighter future.

I’ve been reflecting on how many of us experience life-affirming acts of kindness and support from friends and neighbors. This season of giving is a good time for all of us to remember that happiness is not to be found only in the receiving, but also in the giving. Every contribution of money, effort or time enables healthier communities and lives.
