Arrow Electronics Teams with Salesforce to Fight Hunger in Colorado
Denver – Employees from Arrow Electronics and Salesforce volunteered earlier this month at the Food Bank of the Rockies to support hunger relief efforts. Working in two shifts, the volunteers helped sort, pack and load 70,000 pounds of food that will be distributed throughout Colorado.
Arrow employees have been volunteering at Food Bank of the Rockies since 2011. This is the second year Arrow’s staff has worked alongside Salesforce, as part of a shared commitment to corporate social responsibility.
Extending the company’s collaborative and innovative culture into the broader communities where they live and work, Arrow employees from around the world regularly work with local nonprofits. Last year, Arrow launched Arrow Charitable, a portal to make it easier for employees to learn about volunteer opportunities and take a more active role. Volunteers earn matching funds through the company’s Dollars for Doers program.
In 2017, Arrow employees in the U.S. and Canada participated in 570 volunteer events, donating more than 5,000 volunteer hours. To learn more about Arrow’s Corporate Social Responsibility program, visit: https://www.arrow.com/en/about-arrow/corporate-social-responsibility.
