Launched in 2017, the Arrow Charitable platform empowers employees to engage in their local communities. After achieving high engagement during its first year in the United States and Canada, Arrow worked to make its volunteering and giving programs available to all employees in the Americas.

“As a global citizen, Arrow works to create positive impact around the world, and the Arrow Charitable platform is one way employees can do the same,” said Joe Verrengia, corporate social responsibility director at Arrow. “We look forward to empowering more and more employees to give back in a way that’s meaningful to them.”

The November launch, which includes Arrow locations in Argentina, Brazil and Mexico, allows employees to contribute to the impact made to date. Since 2017, that includes nearly 10,000 volunteer hours logged, over 1,000 events participated in and more than 250 charities supported by employees in the United States and Canada.

Arrow believes that purposeful community engagement makes for happier employees and a stronger company, and the Arrow Charitable expansion demonstrates a commitment to taking corporate social responsibility companywide.
