CENTENNIAL, Colorado, Dec. 31, 2021 / CSRwire / – This holiday season, Arrow Electronics employees have contributed to organizations committed to serving youth and providing essential goods to families in need.

Arrow employees continued their long-standing support for Neema International, a non-profit organization that operates a school and other services in villages in the foothills around Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. This year, employees were able to purchase reusable masks and bags made by local women employed by Neema as part of a social enterprise. All proceeds were donated to the students of Uru de Neema Academy, providing school supplies, clothing, teacher resources and meals. Employees could also make direct donations to the association.

Uru Academy has an Arrow DigiTruck, a classroom equipped with a solar-powered computer and made from a used steel freight container.

Arrow employees also organized a sock drive for the Sock to Em Campaign, which collects and gives socks to homeless adults and children. Colorado-based Arrow (?) Staff collected more than 500 pairs of socks and distributed them to local schools and homeless shelters serving homeless women and men, veterans and other vulnerable populations in the Denver metro area. An employee delivered 300 additional 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 have donated to food banks and youth-focused charities.

  • In France, employees supported Digital for Youth, a non-profit association dedicated to bridging the digital divide in Belgium by providing young people with laptops and other IT equipment. The employees of Arrow’s operations based in France also contributed to Children of the World Cardiac Surgery Patronage which allows children suffering from heart defects to have an operation when they cannot be treated in their country of origin due to lack of financial and technical means. Along with Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Arrow also sponsored the Heart Gala to raise additional funds for the organization.
  • In Germany, employees donated to Die Tafien, a nonprofit association of food banks aimed at alleviating hunger. Employees also sponsored the organization’s gala.
