Intel employees to volunteer at Hillsboro schools

More than 400 Intel employees will be out in force across Hillsboro next week preparing several schools for students this fall.

According to Intel, 433 members from the company’s Product Development Group will be out at six local schools on Wednesday, July 20, as part of the company’s annual Global Day of Service.

“Intel has a long history of service and partnership with the Hillsboro School District,” the school district said in a statement.

The company’s volunteer matching grant program pays for Intel employees to volunteer their time to work across Washington County.

In the past, the company has sent employees to pull weeds in Tigard. Last year, Intel employees spent nearly 20,000 hours working with schools, school clubs, and athletic programs.

The volunteers will be performing odd jobs around the schools, doing everything from assembling furniture, painting, landscaping, washing windows and helping teachers set up classrooms for the fall.


Intel employees will be at the following schools:

• Glencoe High School: 126 volunteers will assist with landscape cleanup, pressure washing outdoor areas, washing windows and technology projects.

• Hillsboro High School: 95 volunteers will be painting, assembling new furniture, re-keying lockers, landscape cleanup, trash removal and helping with technology projects. 

• Brown Middle School: 97 volunteers will be at the school assisting with landscape cleanup, painting, trash removal, technology projects and assisting teachers organize and clean classrooms.

• Ladd Acres Elementary School: 46 volunteers will help improve drainage on the playground, work on landscape cleanup, painting, technology projects and assisting teachers organize and clean classrooms.

• Patterson Elementary School: 36 volunteers will be painting, helping with landscape cleanup, technology projects and assisting teachers organize and clean classrooms.
