Fifteen Colorado volunteers from Arrow Electronics helped Habitat for Humanity Metro Denver complete an affordable home-building project this month.
Despite unseasonably snowy weather, the Arrow team performed an array of tasks at the Aria Homes development in north Denver, including interior painting, hardware installation, cleaning, and preparing the homes for inspection. The development will provide 28 multi-generational and mixed-income homes to qualified owners. Habitat for Humanity Metro Denver has served more than 1,000 families in the metro area.
“We are grateful that as a significant employer in the state of Colorado, Arrow Electronics understands that affordable housing plays a major role in having a prosperous, stable workforce. Their leadership and team members are taking action by partnering with Habitat Metro Denver to build homes, communities and hope,” says Heather Lafferty, chief executive officer of Habitat for Humanity Metro Denver.
Arrow work teams frequently participate in days of service with Habitat, suppliers and customers, too.
“At Arrow we talk about our noble purpose which is all about making the world a better place through the benefits of technology. What’s good for the world around us is also good for Arrow, and this is consistent with that noble purpose,” said President and Chief Executive Officer Sean Kerins who participated in the build.
“To be a part of something bigger than our normal work lives and have Arrow sponsor us unconditionally is a tremendous feeling and benefit,” said Cliff Purslow, director of supply chain architecture in Arrow’s global supply chain services.
