Community Programs
Intel Arizona employees believe it is important to support the community where they live and work. To ensure an open and honest relationship with its neighbors, Intel publishes a quarterly newsletter and holds neighborhood meetings frequently, to inform neighbors of Intel plans and activities and to discuss neighborhood issues and concerns. Intel also has a Community Advisory Panel (CAP) that meets quarterly to discuss and provide advice on a variety of matters including education and the environment.

Additionally, Intel supports a variety of agencies and programs through volunteer involvement and donations. In 2001, through the Intel Involved program, more than 3,900 Intel Arizona employees donated more than 48,000 hours of their time to meet community needs. The following highlights some of Intel's latest community projects in four identified focus areas.
