Intel Corp.'s Arizona employees organized a virtual Holiday Donation Drive that collected more than 800 gifts for children, seniors and families in need Chandler, Gilbert, Queen Creek, San Tan Valley, Mesa and Phoenix.

The company set up Amazon Wish Lists to provide gifts to four local nonprofit organizations, About Care, FANS Across America Charitable Foundation, Helen’s Hope Chest and New Pathways for Youth, to help make the holiday season special for those in need.

“It is an Intel value to be an asset to our communities worldwide and I am extremely proud of our employees in Arizona for their generosity in dedicating their own resources and time to support the Holiday Donation Drive,” stated Liz Shipley, Intel Arizona public affairs director, in a press release.

The nonprofit About Care delivers support services to the homebound elderly and disabled residents of Chandler, Gilbert, Queen Creek and San Tan Valley. FANS Across America Charitable Foundation is a Chandler nonprofit that provides items that are not covered by government assistance to students and families. Helen’s Hope Chest in Mesa works toward engaging the community to help foster families provide for the basic needs of children and teens in foster and kinship care. New Pathways for Youth in Phoenix provides support and personal development to young people through their one-to-one mentoring within the community.

Intel Arizona has been working toward improving life for people in communities across Arizona. The microchip manufacturer and its employees continue to invest in education and economic initiatives, and partner with social programs for equity in science, technology, engineering, arts, and math.

Intel and the Intel Foundation have made a total contribution of more $5.7 million to more than 700 Arizona teachers, schools and nonprofits since 2016.
