THIEF RIVER FALLS, Minnesota, USA – DigiKey, a leading global commerce distributor offering the largest selection of technical components and automation products in stock for immediate shipment, announced today it has provided nearly 39,000 meals to refugees along the border of Thailand and Myanmar in conjunction with Conductive Containers’ “Buy a Box, Give a Meal” program.
Conductive Containers, Inc., a Minnesota-based company specializing in ESD-safe containers and materials, partnered with Minneapolis-based charitable nonprofit organization Venture to create the “Buy a Box, Give a Meal” (BABGAM) program. The program ensures that Conductive Containers will match one percent of express product purchases, doubling the donation to provide meals to refugee children in Thailand and Myanmar. Over the last year, DigiKey’s business with Conductive Containers resulted in nearly 39,000 meals donated through BABGAM.
“We are deeply honored to know that our business with Conductive Containers is making a difference in the lives of those in need,” said Mike Slater, vice president of global business development at DigiKey. “We appreciate the opportunity to contribute to the ‘Buy a Box, Give a Meal’ program and provide essential nourishment to refugee children in Thailand and Myanmar.”
Many of those escaping crisis situations in Myanmar and surrounding areas find sanctuary inside the border of Thailand. Programs like Conductive Containers’ BABGAM program ensure these families receive nutritious meals and other necessary care.
