IPC Launches Electronics for a Better World | IPC Cares Initiative


Reading time ( words)

With a mission to show the world the altruistic works of companies in the electronics industry, IPC announces the launch of the Electronics for a Better World | IPC Cares initiative. A global effort being scheduled during IPC Founders Week, June 9-15, Electronics for a Better World | IPC Cares will shine a spotlight on the charitable efforts of the electronics industry and will recognize the activities of each participating member company through IPC’s social media platforms.

“There are many generous companies in this industry, and we want to highlight their efforts,” said John Mitchell, IPC president and CEO “We’re asking companies to select the charity of their choice and to support it through staff volunteer efforts during the week of June 9-15. We’re proud of our industry’s efforts to make our communities a better place to work and live.”

“We’re asking supporting companies to take part in a local litter collection; organize a food drive; any event to make a difference, said David Bergman, IPC vice president of standards and technology and program lead. “IPC was founded June 14, 1957 and holding Electronics for a Better World | IPC Cares during IPC Founders Week will show how our industry has a positive impact around the globe — this week of volunteerism is a great way to show the world the good things we do beyond the products we manufacture!”

Supporters who have already pledged to participate are Altex Engineered Electronic Solutions, ASM Assembly Systems, Burkle North America Inc., Chemcut Corporation, Green Circuits Inc., Huawei, ITW EAE, Koh Young Technology, Mycronic Inc., Nordson, and Viscom Inc.

IPC staff has chosen to support Clean the World Foundation, a global health organization whose mission is to improve the quality of life for vulnerable communities around the world by providing sustainable resources for programming, and education focused on water, sanitation, and hygiene for all those affected by poverty, homelessness, and humanitarian or natural crises.
