Zoe & Onnolee

Zoe Hemez and Onnolee Englert-Erickson, co-producers of High Tea on the Hill

Hello! We are Onnolee and Zoe from the United Way Youth Team. We are super excited the event we are organizing, called High Tea On The Hill! This event will be a great chance for tea lovers in the community to get together and talk about all things tea! The entire United Way Youth Team has been planning it and is very excited to host this tea party. High Tea On The Hill will be on Sunday, October 18 from 1-2:30 pm in the Los Alamos High School Lobby. The theme this year is “mad hatter”, so we invite you to wear your best or silliest tea hat, and the two attendees with the best hats will receive a teapot that has been decorated by the National Art Honors Society here at Los Alamos High School.  The admission for adults and children will both be $20. All of the profits made from this event will fund local youth programs throughout the community. We are looking forward to seeing you there!

Forecasting for Life After Retirement

IMG_1872Days of alarm-free waking up and countless hours of doing what you want to do is the part of retirement we are all looking forward to.  For some of us,  those days are just around the corner.  Are you financial and mentally ready for this new way of life?  United Way of Northern New Mexico (UWNNM) and The Foundation for Financial Wellness, a non-profit hosted a small group of community members on Thursday, July 23rd, 2015 to discuss, ‘Forecasting for Life After Work.’  This workshop helped individuals headed to retirement verify their income needs, sources of income, and calculate their gap.

Something that also came out of the workshop was keeping your mind sharp through volunteering with United Way and other local nonprofits.

Don Cobb, UWNNM Board Member, spoke briefly about his volunteering experiences after retirement, not only with UWNNM but also the Los Alamos National Laboratory Foundation.

Here are three tips on choosing what causes you should support.


Let us know if you are interested in future learning opportunities around taxes, estate planning, and creating a “debt free life.”   There is be another workshop in October.
