Employees at Arrow’s office in Orange County, Calif. hosted a bowling fundraiser to support American military members and their families. The 4th Annual Operation Help A Hero Bowling Event benefitted Operation Help a Hero, a nonprofit that provides resources to the military community. 

More than 160 customers and suppliers joined 50 Arrow employees at the event, along with members of the United States Marine Corps stationed at Camp Pendleton.  Officials from Operation Help A Hero discussed the organization’s impact on USMC families, which includes providing essential items for Marines transitioning home after deployments, hosting baby showers for expectant mothers and coordinating holiday gift drives for Marine families in need.

Arrow also provided matching funds for the Orange County team’s volunteer hours through the Arrow Charitable Dollars for Doers program. Arrow employees from around the world regularly partner with local nonprofits, extending the company’s collaborative and innovative culture into the broader communities where they live and work. 

In 2018, Arrow employees donated nearly 6,000 volunteer hours in their local communities, supporting 165 charities at 747 events across the Americas.
