In partnership with Schoolhouse Supplies, Vernier and its employees donate back-to-school backpacks to over 400 children in our local community annually.
We also volunteer for organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, The Humane Society, Oregon Museum of Science & Industry, Portland Symphony, Oregon Public Broadcasting, LEGO Robotic Tournaments, Meals-on-Wheels, Oregon Food Bank, and many other organizations.
Vernier employees are encouraged to volunteer for non-profit organizations of their choice on company time and receive 4 hours of pay each month for their volunteer time. Vernier employees regularly volunteer at schools—teaching children to read, teaching art literacy, and helping with field trips and other school functions. In 2011 Vernier reimbursed employees for over 250 hours of volunteer time in their local schools and community non-profit organizations.
Vernier employees organize a yearly can food drive for Oregon Food Bank. They also organize an annual craft fair at Christmas time where employees sell their crafts and donate the proceeds to selected non-profit organizations.
