As we celebrate Thanksgiving, the Arrow Family of Companies is grateful for community-based organizations that make this region a better place to live. This month, we are distributing $100,000 to 20 non-profits for programs that advance the economic well-being of families, including child care, workforce development, transportation, literacy and more.
