Centennial, CO, November 19, 2021 /CSRwire/ – For the sixth consecutive year, Arrow Electronics’ legal department supported the Sock It To Em Campaign, which collects and donates socks to adults and children experiencing homelessness. The campaign has distributed more than 800,000 pairs of socks since it was launched in 2011.
In addition to collecting 319 pairs of socks, Arrow’s Colorado-based employees also gathered other essential items, including toothpaste, deodorant, dental floss, soap, and toilet paper. All 991 items were donated to Help & Hope Center, a non-profit human service organization helping people in economic need in Douglas and Elbert counties located just outside Arrow’s headquarters in metro Denver.
Sock it To Em will be one of Arrow’s charitable partners during its company-wide holiday donation drive in December, expanding the donation opportunity to all employees.
Arrow encourages purposeful community engagement and supports employees in their volunteering and charitable giving efforts. In 2017, Arrow launched the Arrow Charitable platform to make it easier for employees to get directly involved and rewarded for engaging proactively with their local communities. Employees who participated in the Sock It To Em Campaign could log their volunteer hours and contributions on the platform to qualify for matching funds from the company.
Arrow directly helped 1.8 million people through its corporate social responsibility efforts in 2020.
