GlobalFoundries’ Fab 8 GlobalGives Holiday Gift Campaign Raises $30K for Local Charities
Malta, NY, Dec. 30, 2021 - Nothing is more important to GlobalFoundries Inc. (GF) than the safety and well-being of our worldwide team, their families and communities. Just as our feature-rich semiconductor chips enable technological innovation, as a company we aim to be a catalyst for driving positive social impact at home and around the world. GF is pleased to share that on behalf of our generous Fab 8 employees, GF has donated a total of $30,000 to two local charities: the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York and Saratoga Bridges. This joyful outcome was a result of our GlobalFoundries GlobalGives Holiday Gift Campaign.
GF would like to thank the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York and Saratoga Bridges for the critical services they provide year-round. These organizations take care of so many in our community, especially during times like these. We know that during these challenging times their mission is more important than ever as they work to help those in need. We hope that this donation will help to alleviate the cost of meeting some of our community's needs during this holiday season.
Additionally in December, our GF Malta employees contributed to our 2021 Fab 8 Toys for Tots Drive, which is coordinated each year with the U.S. Marine Corps. Many employees brought in new, unwrapped toys to give to children in need in the greater Capital Region and contributed monetary donations for gifts to be purchased for the drive. As a result, a total of 2,809 toys were donated (plus 48 bikes that were assembled by GF employee volunteers) to the program!
GlobalGives is our GF worldwide program of both employee- and company-driven initiatives around philanthropy, giving, social justice, disaster relief, environmental protection, volunteering, and promoting STEM education. Each of our locations have well-established programs and teams dedicated to enriching the lives of local citizens, and we take great pride in their long history of community involvement and service.
We thank our GF employees who continue to give generously, volunteer, and help those in our local community during the holiday season and year-round!
