Members of Arrow Electronics’ “Young Professionals” group recently volunteered with The GrowHaus, a Denver-area nonprofit indoor farm, community marketplace and educational center.

The 25 Arrow volunteers helped to pack food bags that would be donated to local families in need, and they also washed, chopped and boxed pallets of lettuce, mushrooms, seasonal produce and eggs for distribution to local markets and stores.

The GrowHaus works to ensure communities have the means to nourish themselves. Its mission is to “create a community-driven, neighborhood-based food system by serving as a hub for food distribution, production, education and economic development.”

The volunteer event was hosted by the Arrow Young Professionals, an employee-driven collaborative group that provides regular development and networking opportunities for Arrow employees.
