Library Volunteer Rand
“I volunteer because I enjoy helping organizations that I respect and that need a few extra projects to be accomplished which might not otherwise get done.”
Library volunteer Rand works in the San Mateo Public Library’s Media Department, putting RFID tags on books and other materials. He also sits on the Library’s Biotech Advisory Group and works with the FRIENDS of the Library by maximizing their sales of used DVDs, CDs, and recorded books. He has volunteered at the library since he retired from Intel in 2003.
About three years ago, the Intel Foundation extended its matching grants to education to include any 501c3 non-profit, so now the Intel Foundation grants $10/hour for every volunteerism hour that its employees and retirees report. The Library is delighted to get both a great volunteer plus a check sent directly to the SMPL Library Foundation. Keep racking up those volunteer hours!
Thank you, Rand, for doubling the value of your service hours by using the corporate matching gifts program from your previous employer.
