DELL Ireland this week revealed its employees raised a total of €82,996 for non-profit organisations in 2013.
The Dell Ireland team donated 26,461 hours to support many worthy causes including the Irish Cancer Society. Employees based at the Dell campus in Limerick did their bit for the community through fundraising for a range of causes and through the PM4Life skills-sharing initiative.
“The contribution made by the team at Dell to the local community is immense,” said Timmy O’Dwyer, Limerick site leader, Dell Ireland.
“A host of worthy causes have benefitted from the hard work and generosity of our people over the course of the past twelve months. The determination and commitment they have displayed is to be applauded.”
In November, employees at Dell’s campus in Limerick came together to work on a Christmas card and candle sale to raise money for Milford Care Centre, which provides specialist palliative care and clinical services for older persons.
A total of over €2,000 was raised for the centre through fundraising activities.
Other activities were directed at raising money for charities including Focus Ireland and Trocaire.
The PM4Life initiative sees Dell employees impart skills and efficiency-improving know-how to personnel in the Irish non-profit sector.
Employees are assisted in achieving their giving goals through programmes where hours spent volunteering are met with charitable rewards and employees’ eligible financial donations are matched by the company itself.
