It’s been a busy few weeks for employees at Intel who have been steadily volunteering in the surrounding communities as part of the Intel Involved volunteer scheme.
October 16th saw members from both Etch and Manufacturing Engineering departments make a trip to St. John of God’s, Celbridge to paint the exterior window ledges of the building. Intel involved volunteers have visited St. John of God’s a number of times over the past few months, with the SORT department playing Basketball with the residents, whilst more recently a team of Corporate Services Engineers gave a much needed lick of paint to the bingo hall, to the delight of the residents there.
October 21st was also a busy day for Intel’s finance department who split into two groups with half going to Ryevale Nursing Home, Leixlip to play Bingo and the other half to Maynooth to paint the Irish Country Womens Association building.
All of the hours volunteered by the above projects are pushing Intel Ireland closer to reaching their site goal of 34,000 volunteer hours, pledged as part of the Intel Corporation’ 40th Anniversary year. Intel Irelands external relations manager Lisa Harlow is delighted with the efforts of her fellow employees, “The amount of hours volunteered by Intel staff this year is astounding, all we need now is one last push to help reach our site volunteer goal.”
