Rep. Nan Hayworth, R-Mount Kisco, inserted the following statement into the Congressional Record honoring IBM’s 100th Anniversary, which is today:
“Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize the largest employer in New York’s 19th Congressional District, IBM, on their 100th anniversary of their founding. IBM employees, retirees, partners, and clients within the Lower Hudson Valley and around the world are hosting an IBM Centennial Day of Service to donate their time, skills, and expertise to support our communities.
“Since 2003, IBM employees have donated more than 13 million hours of service around the world in over 120 countries. Within the last six months alone, IBM volunteers have contributed over 2.5 million hours to service in behalf of worthy causes, including teaching math and science to middle school students; mentoring young Uruguayans from impoverished neighborhoods; and coaching hundreds of small business entrepreneurs in Nigeria.
“$12 million in service grants are also being distributed as part of the IBM Centennial Day of Service, and I commend both IBM and its thousands of dedicated and talented employees for their generosity.
“Thank you, and I yield back the remainder of my time.
