Service to the Community
Thousands of New Mexicans across the state directly benefit
from the efforts of PNM employee volunteers.
Our volunteer projects focus on results that are important
to the community and employees, such as weatherizing the homes
of low-income senior citizens or helping to restore the environment.
In addition, employees are encouraged to serve on the board
of directors of nonprofit organizations.
Some examples of PNM employees making a difference:
- After a section of the Albuquerque Bosque was damaged by
fire in 2004, PNM adopted a 10 acre section of land to help restore it to its' original beauty. Volunteers have planted more
than 150 trees, picked up countless bags of trash and built a walking trail.
- Similar environmental projects have been conducted across
the state, including Belen, where volunteers planted 55
trees at Los Lunas River Park.
- From 2005-2008, more than 350 low-income seniors statewide
had their homes weatherized. This included weather-stripping
doors and windows, sealing cracks with caulk and, in some
cases, replacing old furnaces.
- In 2008, more than 17,000 items were donated by PNM employees for the annual school-supply drive. Notebooks, folders, pencils and much more were donated to schools across the state.
