On August 21, 2008 National Instrument’s Manufacturing Division provided its employees an opportunity to give back to the community by volunteering with several nonprofit organizations.
Hands On Central Texas, a program of United Way Capital Area helped plan and organize on-site the MLK Peace Bench Project. Approximately 45 employees worked together to foster a sense of teamwork which included painting, designing and choosing MLK quotes for imprint on the benches, as well as messages of peace or inspiring words. A total of 14 MLK Peace Benches were completed during National Instruments community service day!
The benches will be distributed to recreation centers, community/neighborhood centers and nonprofit organizations to promote social interaction and to build a stronger sense of community.
Thank you National Instrument’s Manufacturing Division for making an impact in the community through your volunteer efforts.
