on October 19, 2017 - 3:14pm
By DON COBB
Adjunct Board Member
United Way of Northern New Mexico

My involvement with the United Way of Northern New Mexico has evolved in stages. For many years I contributed as a lab employee because it was convenient through payroll deductions, and it seemed like the right thing to do. But I really didn’t understand where my money was going or how it was being distributed. Then one day in 2005, two colleagues who were on the United Way board invited me to attend a meeting. The hook was set.

I was invited to serve out the remaining term of a board member who was stepping down.
