Arrow Electronics Employees Volunteer with Habitat for Humanity
DENVER, November 22, 2016 /3BL Media/ - A group of 50 employees from Arrow’s North America components team volunteered with Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver last month, helping a local Habitat ReStore process and transport a generous donation of patio furniture and other items from the Colorado Convention Center.
The Arrow volunteers assisted Habitat staff in palletizing and shrink-wrapping the donated items, which will be sold at Habitat ReStores. The donations are expected to generate over $300,000 in funding for the nonprofit. Arrow contributed additional funds to Habitat, based on the employees’ volunteer time.
“I’m proud of these Arrow employees. They embody Arrow’s forward-looking Five Years Out mission, which includes a commitment to making a difference in the communities where we live and work,” said Sean Kerins, president of Arrow’s global enterprise computing solutions business, who helps to guide Arrow’s collaboration with Habitat forward. “Arrow Electronics is proud to support Habitat’s great work, and we look forward to continuing to innovate and expand our partnership.”
Habitat is an important charity partner to Arrow. Many Arrow employee teams participate in Habitat projects to team-build and give back to their communities. Arrow also sponsors the Night of Miracles event in Denver, Colorado.
