Honoree:  Team Western Digital

Honored by:  Western Digital

Western Digital employees are always among the first to step foward to help others. Whether it is board service, cleaning up a beach, providing lunch for veterans, painting a playground, or tutoring a child, our team members are there.

During this past year, oTeam Western Digital4ur employees volunteeered each Tuesday night in January to assist the homeless at the emergency armory shelters for the homeless. To ensure that the holidays were a little brighter for children and their financially-struggling families, our employees purchased hundreds of toys and household items– using their own funds. Then, with the help of the Western Digital Foundation, our employees sponsored a holiday dinner, with all the trimmings and Santa, for these grateful families!

Education, especially the STEM disciplines, is important to our employees. Many Western DigTeam Western Digital5ital engineers are willing to tutor and advise students. Recently, our volunteers were tapped to play an integral role in the develop of the STEM badge for the Girl Scouts in OC. Who knows, one of these young girls may one day be a WD engineer!

Each February, our volunteers lead our signature “Pin It’ drive, raising money for a healthcare related nonprofit. By collecting donations in exchange for lapel heart pins, our volunteers raised $10,000 for the Alzheimer’s Association last year. These grassroots projects are all volunteer driven.

Team Western Digital3Providing diapers and other baby essentials is an annual Springtime event at our corporate headquarters in Irvine. And, each summer, the halls of WD beco
me collection spots for hundreds of backpacks and school supplies, all of which are donated to students in need.

No matter the season, there is always some type of volunteer activity at WD. We couldn’t do it without our dedicated employees. At WDC – We Drive Change!
