CENTENNIAL, Colo., December 31, 2021 /CSRwire/ - This holiday season, Arrow Electronics employees contributed to organizations committed to serving youth and providing essential goods to families in need.
Arrow employees continued their long-running support of Neema International, a nonprofit that operates a school and other services in foothill villages around Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. This year, employees could purchase masks and reusable bags made by local women employed by Neema as part of a social enterprise. All proceeds benefitted students at Neema’s Uru Academy, providing school supplies, clothing, teacher resources and meals. Employees could also make direct donations to the nonprofit.
Uru Academy features an Arrow DigiTruck, a solar powered computer-equipped classroom made from a used steel cargo container.
Arrow employees also conducted a sock drive for the Sock it to Em Campaign, which collects and donates socks to adults and children experiencing homelessness. Arrow’s (?) Colorado-based staff collected more than 500 pairs of socks and distributed them to local schools and homeless shelters serving women and men experiencing homelessness, veterans, and other vulnerable populations throughout metro Denver. One employee delivered an additional 300 pairs to Foundation for the Homeless, an organization that works to alleviate homelessness in Austin.
Arrow matched employee contributions for both campaigns.
In Europe, Arrow employees donated to food banks and youth-focused charities.
