Sandia’s giving tree has many branches

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Sandia National Laboratories’ employees have just completed the yearly Employee Caring Program.

Sandia broke their giving record. Sandia employees and retirees have pledged $3.738 million to the United Way of Central New Mexico, making it the number one giver again. Sandia’s giving tree resides at Sandia not just during the holidays but throughout the year. Each branch constitutes a different type of giving to the community. Here are some examples.

Sandia is a multiprogram laboratory operated by Sandia Corporation, a Lockheed Martin company, for the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration. With main facilities in Albuquerque, N.M., and Livermore, Calif., Sandia has major R&D responsibilities in national security, energy and environmental technologies, and economic competitiveness.
