Sandia collects $250K for Native American neighbors
When COVID-19 began ravaging Native American communities in the southwest in April, a sense of urgency started to mount for Sandia tribal government relations program manager Laurence Brown. He and other volunteers sparked a grassroots effort that led to a Labs-wide fundraising drive, resulting in donations of more than $250,000 for the Native American Relief Fund.

This April 22 marked the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. Though Sandians were unable to celebrate onsite, the Labs’ annual Environmental Management System Environmental Excellence Awards honored those who help to reduce ecological impacts, in the spirit of resource conservation and environmental protection.
