The Arrow Family of Companies announced that its local charitable giving in 2020 was $470,000 and Arrow Team volunteerism exceeded 3,300 hours throughout its service footprint in Albany, Schenectady, Rensselaer, Saratoga, Warren, Washington, Essex and Clinton counties.
During a very difficult year, Glens Falls National Bank and Trust Co., Saratoga National Bank and Trust Co. and Upstate Agency LLC supported hundreds of community groups, business associations and local non-profits help to meet the critical needs of our communities.
“By investing in, and partnering with, local organizations through volunteerism and charitable contributions, we help improve the quality of life for our neighbors and the communities in which they live and work,” said President and CEO Thomas J. Murphy. “This year, it was more important than ever to step up our giving back to local communities.”
The $470,000 in contributions during 2020 helped local organizations focus on food insecurity, affordable housing, workforce development, student success, mental health, financial wellness, economic development and supporting emergency assistance funds among many others.
In addition to sponsorships and financial contributions, volunteerism and education is ingrained in the Arrow Team culture and a big part of the company’s commitment to each community served.
In 2020, Team members donated more than 3,300 volunteer hours of service to 170 organizations, with over 50 percent of those hours dedicated to organizations helping low-moderate income individuals, families and areas.
