Noble in the Community encompasses the ways the Noble Research Institute engages with the community. Its purpose is to facilitate opportunities for the Noble Research Institute to enrich people's lives and build stronger communities through various community engagement programs:
Since its creation in 2014, Team Noble has become a recognizable force for change in the Ardmore community. Employees who choose to volunteer wear green "Team Noble" T-shirts and join together to assist with community events, bring cheer to veterans, beautify the community by picking up trash, and more.
In 2016, 210 employees contributed 2,672 volunteer hours through Team Noble.
Within its first three years (from 2014 to 2016), Noble in the Community invested nearly $200,000 into the community through employees' time, talent and resources. This number is based on the Independent Sector, which estimates the value of volunteer time in Oklahoma is $22 per hour.
