IEEE and its members inspire a global community to innovate for a better tomorrow through its highly-cited publications, conferences, technology standards, and professional and educational activities.

  • King County Police Union – My ID Club – The MY ID CLUB program was created in 1997 in Seattle, WA as a community service program of the King County Police Union. Our goal was to issue photograph/fingerprint identification cards to all children under the age of 16, FREE of charge. Since then, we have completed over 1,700 events in 55 different cities, issuing over 400,000 ID cards.
  • Toys for Tots – The mission of the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.
