OAK RIDGE, Tenn.— Consolidated Nuclear Security, LLC, managing and operating contractor for the Pantex and Y-12 sites, announced that contributions from employees, retirees, and the parent companies topped $1M in donations in 2018.

The sites engaged in yearlong campaigns to generate money for the United Way, raising funds through silent auctions and various jewelry, book and food sales at the sites as well as employee contributions.

“Pantexans understand the value of giving to the local community and of helping those in need,” Pantex Site Manager Todd Ailes said. “Year after year, our employees and retirees step up to take care of people in the Panhandle.”

“One of the best ways to help our local communities is through the United Way,” Y-12 Site Manager Bill Tindal said. “Y-12 and East Tennessee are special places because of the commitment of our employees to giving back to our neighbors.”

Y-12 employee contributions to the United Way are distributed in 17 East Tennessee counties, while Pantex contributions benefit the Texas Panhandle region and equated to 11 percent of the overall Amarillo and Canyon United Way campaign.
