Almost 40 non-profit organisations and social enterprise across Munster have received a financial boost thanks to the Analog Devices employee selected community awards scheme announced recently. Milford Hospice, St Gabriel’s, Ahane GAA Club and Limerick Youth Service were among the many Limerick non-profits who have benefited from the programme.

The annual donations that the Analog Employee Community Awards programme enables employees at Analog’s Limerick and Cork sites to nominate their chosen community, voluntary or charitable organisation to receive financial support from the company in recognition for their contribution to the local community.

A broad spectrum of educational, social, charitable and cultural bodies across Limerick, Cork and Clare benefited from the generous Analog Employee Community Awards programme with donations going to local GAA clubs, primary schools, a Men’s shed group, a Sanctuary programme and numerous well-deserved charities.
