2021 Highlights

A new Community Technical Assistance program allowed nonprofit, tribal, and non-Federal government entities in Northern New Mexico to access the unique expertise and capabilities of the Laboratory on a variety of technical challenges at no cost to the organizations. Among the first projects was a data sprint in which LANL data scientists partnered with Northern New Mexico College and Santa Fe Community College to investigate student retention rates and risk factors at those institutions.

The Laboratory organized 12 blood drives with 393 donors giving 469 units of blood, enough to save 1407 lives.

Hosted a Community Conversation online event for more than 90 regional nonprofit leaders outlining new ways the Laboratory can assist nonprofits, and offering an expert-led session on running successful volunteer programs.

A virtual Food Drive received donations of $41,724 for the Food Depot which equates to 166,894 meals provided to tackle food insecurity in the region.

New Time & Talent program launched, under which employees who track their volunteer time with Northern New Mexico nonprofits make those nonprofits eligible to enter a draw for a $500 grant from LANL operator Triad.
