Intel Ireland announces 2018 Signature Charities

Intel Ireland announces partnership with The Alzheimer Society of Ireland and Make-a-Wish Ireland for 2018 Signature Charities campaign

 

At Intel Ireland we are passionate about our commitment to community involvement, charity support and volunteering. Every year we select two charities for our employees to dedicate their combined efforts towards providing volunteer time and funds, raised through specially organised activities, to these chosen charities.

Employees will engage in and support a number of different activities and events throughout the year such as the annual Intel Charity Cycle, 5km Fun Run and Bake Sale to name a few. Both of the Signature Charities will also benefit from Intel’s unique initiative; the Matching Grants Program, which motivates employees to engage in volunteerism by providing cash grants to the organisations where the employees volunteer their time.

 

For 2018, the chosen Signature Charities are The Alzheimer Society of Ireland and Make a Wish Ireland.

 

The Alzheimer Society of Ireland is the leading dementia specific service provider in Ireland. A national non-profit organization. The Alzheimer Society of Ireland is person centered, rights-based and grassroots led with the voice of the person with dementia and their carer at its core. They currently have 15 branches delivering 120 dementia specific services such as day care centres, home care services, carer support groups, social clubs, Alzheimer cafes and two respite centres. Their vision is an Ireland where no one goes through dementia alone and where policies and services respond appropriately to the person with dementia and their carers, at the times they need support.

 

Make-A-Wish Ireland is an affiliate of the international Make-A-Wish family. Arriving in 2002, Make-A-Wish Ireland has one simple aim – to grant the wishes of children aged between 3 and 17 years living with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. As it stands Make-a-Wish has granted over 2,000 wishes to brave children across Ireland. As a well-respected and popular children’s charity, Make-a-Wish are fully committed to providing the maximum level of care and enjoyment for children and even more importantly the inclusion of each child’s family to provide long lasting memories to last a lifetime.

 

Intel Ireland is proud to support these charities and the amazing work they do.
