CENTENNIAL, Colo., Dec. 12 /CSRwire/ - Employees from Arrow Electronics and Salesforce traded keyboards for floorboards when they participated in a Habitat for Humanity charitable home build on Nov. 6. This marks the second consecutive year the two companies have extended their business relationship into broader efforts to serve the community.

In 2018, volunteers from Arrow and Salesforce sorted, packed and loaded 70,000 pounds of food distributed throughout Colorado by Food Bank of the Rockies. 

This year, the two companies worked together to help build houses in the Swansea Homes development, a 32-unit neighborhood being constructed by Habitat of Humanity of Metro Denver near downtown Denver. Located conveniently near the city’s light rail line, the three-and four-bedroom duplexes will provide housing for more than 144 adults and children.

“Our work is deeply rooted in improving the quality of life for as many as possible,” said Sean Kerins, president of Arrow’s global enterprise computing solutions business. “Doing that well requires a connection not just to our suppliers and customers, but also to the communities in which we operate.”

Arrow employees also earned matching funds for Habit for Humanity through Arrow’s Dollars for Doers program. Habitat for Humanity has been building affordable homes in metro Denver for almost 40 years, serving more than 900 families to date. Learn more at: www.habitatmetrodenver.org.
