COVID-19 Pandemic Response

Directing resources to those in need
Laboratory operator Triad contributed a total of $40,000 to the emergency response funds of local community foundations.

The Laboratory’s support for the community in dealing with the pandemic focused on working with regional nonprofits to direct resources to those in need, including healthcare workers, children, and those who have lost their jobs.

Laboratory volunteer Michael Middlemas worked shifts at nonprofits The Food Depot and Kitchen Angels to help members of the community affected by the pandemic.

Triad gave $10,000 to the Pueblo Relief Fund to help our tribal neighbors, and (through the Regional Development Corporation), funded 35 COVID Emergency Fund grants to small rural businesses facing loss of revenue brought on by the pandemic.

Employees donated $137,000 to The Food Depot to help people in Northern New Mexico facing food insecurity.

The Laboratory organized blood drives in Los Alamos, and has been encouraging employees to volunteer in other ways, including offering paid time for volunteer hours.

The Laboratory procured hand sanitizer, masks and other protective equipment from small businesses in the region.

The Laboratory continued operating, with the majority of employees working from home, and strict safety measures in place for those who had to work on-site.
