Arrow Electronics Employees Score Funds for Financial Education Through Junior Achievement Bowl-A-Thon
DENVER, June 5, 2019 /3BL Media/ – More than 100 Arrow Electronics employees in the company’s Centennial, Colo. headquarters participated in the Junior Achievement Bowl-A-Thon to raise money for the nonprofit’s outreach to Colorado youth. The employees raised enough funds to sponsor educational programming for 250 students.
Junior Achievement Rocky Mountain, Inc. will reach over 100,000 students this year, teaching them invaluable life lessons in financial literacy, career readiness and entrepreneurship at no cost thanks to corporate partners like Arrow.
“The time spent raising money for Junior Achievement will help change the trajectory of a student’s life. Without those efforts, Junior Achievement would not be able to provide hands-on learning experiences to students across the Rocky Mountain region,” said Jen Iaeger, JA Bowl-A-Thon manager.
Employees who participated in the event received matching funds for their efforts through the Arrow Charitable “Dollars for Doers” program, which rewards employees for contributing to their local communities.
Arrow employees from around the world regularly work with local nonprofits, extending the company’s collaborative and innovative culture into the broader communities where they live and work.
