Los Alamos, New Mexico, December 1, 2009—Los Alamos National Laboratory employees once more demonstrated concern for their communities and those in need by pledging a record $1.3 million to United Way and other eligible nonprofit programs.

Los Alamos National Security, LLC, which operates the Laboratory, plans to prorate its $1 million match among the selected nonprofit organizations, bringing the total donation to $2.3 million.

“Our Los Alamos employees can take pride in this accomplishment,” Community Programs Office Director Kurt Steinhaus said of this year’s pledged amount, which shattered last year’s total of slightly more than $1 million.

“Yet again, Laboratory personnel have shown through their generosity that their community is important to them and that they are eager to help those around them,” said Steinhaus.

The Laboratory employee contributions will fund a number of United Way agencies and programs as well as other eligible nonprofit organizations.
