Analog Devices International supports 39 Munster Charities and Voluntary Groups
Analog Devices International (ADI), a global leader in high-performance semiconductors for signal processing applications, has made financial donations to 39 community, voluntary and charitable organizations across Munster as part of its Community Awards and Charitable Donations Programme.
Employees from the Limerick and Cork sites of Analog Device International were given the opportunity to have their say on who benefited from the programme. Over 200 nominations were made on behalf of a wide variety of educational, social, charitable, cultural and artistic organizations.
Following a review by the Community Relations Team at Analog Devices International, contributions were made across four category types, Platinum (1 award), Gold (3 awards), Silver (5 awards) and Bronze (30 awards).
As a long-standing charity partner of Analog Device International, Milford Hospice received the Platinum donation. Gold and Silver donations were made to 8 organizations, including, Limerick Suicide Watch, Special Olympics Munster, TLC4CF (Tipperary-Limerick-Clare for Cystic Fibrosis), ADAPT House, Enable Ireland, Gateway to Education Limerick, My Canine Companion Autism Service Dogs, Waterman’s Lodge day & Respite Care Centre and the Alzheimer Society.
The 30 Bronze recipients included a wide variety of schools, sporting clubs, social enterprises and needy charitable causes based in Limerick, Cork, and Tipperary.
All recipients were invited to a special award ceremony in Analog Devices International, Limerick recently where the respective awardees were hosted by their nominating employees and were presented with cheques by site leaders, Denis Doyle and Leo McHugh.
Leo McHugh, VP, Industrial Business Units, Analog Device International said, “Many ADI employees already generously volunteer their time and energy helping diverse organizations in their localities. Our Community Awards and Charitable Donations Programme provides us with a great opportunity to recognise the positive impact these community, voluntary and charitable organizations are making in communities across Munster and help them build upon the great work that is already ongoing”.
Denis Doyle, Vice President and General Manager of Manufacturing, ADI concluded, “This is a great example of the link between Analog Devices and the local community.
