Arc-Tronics Gives Back

Arc-Tronics has always been a family company. Being in business for over 50 years and having second generation owners is just a couple of the ways they do this, but that’s not all. Arc-Tronics and their employees spend a great deal of their time doing community and charity work throughout the year, helping give back to the community. Not only are their employees like family, but they have created a village for those in need.

Community and charity events are crucial for creating a sense of unity and empathy within society. These events serve as ways for individuals to come together regardless of their backgrounds or differences and work towards a common goal: help those in need. By participating in community and charity events, we not only contribute to the betterment of these communities, but also grow appreciation and an understanding for the challenges others may face.

These events also create powerful and often lasting relationships. Whether it’s through volunteering at a local food drive, participating in a charity run, blood drive, or throwing our own  fundraiser, people are able to collaborate and support one another while also making a positive impact. Not only are others helped, but community and charity events raise awareness about important social issues, which in turn sparks conversations and leads to hopeful further action to address systemic challenges and injustices. By actively participating in these events, individuals not only give back to their communities but also contribute to building a more compassionate and equitable world for everyone.

Some upcoming charity events are:

Feed My Starving Children
May 18th, 2024

The work Feed My Starving Children does is deeply personal to them, their volunteers, donors, food distribution partners and meal recipients. They mean it when they say it: “We want to reach everyone, until ALL are fed,” because no one deserves to go hungry, especially when we can do something about it. They’ve worked hard to create nutritious meal formulas that really meet the needs of starving people, and this food makes a real impact in their lives.
