Beatrice Dubois, dedicated fundraiser, assisted after home fire
Beatrice Dubois has always been a strong advocate for LANL employee giving programs. Every year, she organizes a bake sale in support of the annual employee giving campaign and musters support with her coworkers for the Lab’s annual holiday drive. A perennial helper, she didn’t realize that she might someday need help herself.
On February 21, 2011, a devastating fire broke out at Bea’s home. She and her granddaughter were injured, and the fire completely destroyed their home, belongings, and vehicles. Bea’s coworkers responded quickly and called on local nonprofit organizations to help. Self Help, Inc., American Red Cross, and Trinity on the Hill Episcopal Church and Thrift Store responded by providing clothing, housing, and other assistance to Bea and her family.
LANL employee contributions to the annual employee giving campaign make it possible for these and other nonprofit organizations in northern New Mexico to provide life-saving, crucial services to residents who find themselves in need.
