Albuquerque: More than 200 PNM employees across New Mexico will spend the afternoon of Friday, April 25 working in the communities where they live, work and play. Employees will help nonprofits and neighborhoods spruce up just in time for warmer weather.
"Each year employees spend thousands of their off hours volunteering in the communities, but this day gives us a chance to do it together and make a significant impact," said Pat Vincent-Collawn, PNM chairman, president and CEO.
