Micron Malaysia management, staff and family were joined by Rotarians and their families at Beach Cleaning at Batu Musang jetty, at Batu Kawan, Seberang Perai. Within 2 hours, the enthusiatic volunteers cleared half a TON of plastic, and rubbish from a 500-metre stretch of beach. Datuk Bandar of Seberang Perai YBhg. Dato' Azhar bin Hj Arshad did the honours of completing the program
We sponsored 5 units of air conditioners to Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Dato' Bijaya Setia, Sungai Petani. They were installed at Block A, which is located near the main road. Due to noise and dust pollution, the windows cannot be opened and students have no other options to relocate. Hence, those classes needed the air-conditioning.
In addition to giving laptops, a projector, schools bags and stationery, the Micron Young Professionals have adopted the school and are tutoring the students in English, Mathematics and Science, carry out farming activities and mural-painting.
Rotarians Arvind, Koek Yee Jeen and Dr Parthiban joined them to present aid to the students of Sekolah Kebangsaan Pulau Aman, which is a fishing community.
Micron School Outreach program repainted the mural on the retaining wall of SK Pulau Aman, Seberang Perai. Rotarian Prassana and family joined them in this project.
Rotary International District 3300 Awards and Recognitions were presented on 17 June 2022 at Hee Lai Ton, Petaling Jaya by District Governor Dato' Bindi Rajasegaran. Rotary Club of Bandar Sungai Petani won the Best Community Service Project in 2021-22 amongst the large clubs (membership above 25) in the District.

32 children were treated to KFC Buka Puasa on 25 April 2022. In a joint project by Micron Memory Malaysia and Rotary Club of Bandar Sungai Petani, we visited Rumah Permata Kasih in Permatang Pauh and presented RM 5,000 worth of groceries, fresh vegetables, stand fans and a printer. The children, all girls aged 5 and 6 years old, received a set of tudung and jubah as well as duit Raya. The project was donated by Micron and their staff. Micron staff and Rotarians rolled up their sleeves to bring the items to the home. The smiles on the faces of the children tell the story.
