Wow! I just gotta say, “Volunteers are Awesome!” Y’know we’ve been doing this event for over 10 years now and it gets better every year! First of all, we’ve had corporate volunteers thinking “outside the office”, they did all kinds of community projects and I heard people are signing up to do more ongoing projects. Way cool! A big thank you to Freescale Semiconductor for supporting this Day of Caring and big bear hugs to Jignasha Patel and Tom Spencer for inspiring us to “be the change we wish to see in our world.”
And now for your viewing pleasure, the Day of Caring slideshow…..
But wait, there’s more!

I can’t begin to tell you how much fun we all had helping out with the MLK Peace Bench Project. Personally, I’ve been involved with the United Way since I was 15, and part of the Youth Leadership Program. It felt good to give back to the wonderful community of Austin by providing one-of-a-kind hand painted benches to share and spread the very powerful message of Martin Luther King Jr.. Our Design team here at Freescale looks forward to the next volunteer opportunity. Thanks so much!
IBM IPLAW department members joined in to participate in Days of Caring and our performance was excellent…We took a tour of the establishment and learned that Goodwill actually has many excellent programs that reach out to the community. The volunteer work we did was very different and interesting and it was good to know that not only did we help the community, but the environment as well.
