Freescale employees have a dream………

During United Way’s Days of Caring on April 25, 2008 a team of Freescale employees came together to express their inspirations and creativity and to make a meaningful difference in the community.

They participated in Hands On Central Texas’ MLK Peace Bench Project. Throughout the day they reflected on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s teachings of social justice by transforming wooden benches to a pieces of art! They choose MLK quotes for imprint on the benches, painted messages of peace and inspiring words. A total of fifteen “Peace Benches” were built on Friday.

Hands On Central Texas through its service days will build 100 benches to foster community service and action in East Austin. The benches will be distributed to recreation centers, community/neighborhood centers and nonprofit organizations to promote social interaction and build a stronger sense of community.


Thank you Freescale employees for your enthusiasm and passion!

The designs you created are awesome. You are truly an amazing bunch!

  1. A Little Rock, a Little Roll and Lots of Pounds!

    Day of Caring at the Food Bank was full of music, fun and fabulous volunteers! Majic 95.5 and MIX 94.7 aired their early shows in our Community Room.

    We had 31 vols from Entercom and 12 from Freescale helping sort and inspect food donations while the radio shows aired. Both groups were dynamic and sorted a whopping 20,000 lbs. of food which provided 16,000 meals to our community.

    Thanks to all our partners and volunteers who made this Day of Caring another huge success!
