Wednesday, January 3, 2018 3:01 pm MST

Employees of Avnet’s Richardson, Texas branch recently rallied customers and suppliers to raise $15,000 for the non-profit Hope For The Warriors organization, a national program which provides support for United States’ service veterans, active duty troops and military families.

For the past three years, the Avnet team has hosted a “Driving For Heroes” golf outing benefitting Hope For The Warriors. The proceeds from year’s “Driving For Heroes” event brings Avnet’s total contribution to Hope For The Warriors to more than $60,000.

Hope For The Warriors provides a variety of support programs focused on transition services, clinical health and wellness, sports and recreation and community development and engagement.

“We’re proud of the initiative taken by our employees, and for the generosity of our customers and suppliers who help us support this worthy organization,” said Melissa Gray, vice president corporate affairs for Avnet.
