@Hospice: Yes, I agree with you. Charity work is wonderful work. But then, charity work should not be generally publicized by company's own person. It is ok if non aligned media notices the work and highlight it.
To my guess, Avnet Corporate policy may not agree with this. Most corporate do wonderful work for charity but they may not make it public.
"Having charity events linked with companies sets a good public view of the company as well."
The primary reason for enterprise involvement in charity events should not be for public relationship. Charity work should be deprived of any deguised motive. The only way I can agree with this post is that it may motivate other companies to engage in charity events as well. Otherwise, it is not woth it.
