Q: How do your company values shape your engagement with the community?

One of Micron’s values is people. We care about each other and our communities. Team members are encouraged to volunteer in our communities and are provided paid time off to do so. We also have a robust matching gifts program to match their donations made in the community. Through these programs we are creating a culture of giving within the company.

Q: Our theme this year is ‘Tis the Season to Smile Again! In your own words, why is this the season to smile again?

When we pause to reflect on gratitude, it is often the simple things that bring us the most joy. Despite the circumstances, the simple things about the holidays and our gratitude for them can help us smile and look forward to more moments in the future where things will be better.

Q: What is your favorite part of our Holiday Wish Drive?

Knowing that children will have something that will make them smile and provide that spark of joy is the best part of the Wish Drive!
