Digi-Key Remains #DKSTRONG in the Face of Challenge

4/8/2020 | By Kevin Walseth

During these unprecedented times, Covid-19 has caused stress to be at its max for many companies, small businesses, and individuals. However, even during these challenging times, we can see so many positives that build us up day-to-day. One of these being the #aworldofhearts movement, where hearts can be seen on windows across the country as a symbol of hope, strength, and unity to remind everyone that we are all in this together.

At Digi-Key Electronics, we are considered an essential business to allow us to continue to supply electronic components and equipment to medical and government agencies along with other essential companies.

Digi-Key Remains #DKSTRONG in the Face of Challenge

With that said, our team has been working tirelessly to make sure orders are not just going out, but going out on-time. When employees are done for the day, it is typically quite late in the evening and the entire team is exhausted. We wanted to spread some positivity to say “Thank You” for their hard work and dedication in helping to fight this fight. Everyone plays a part and we are grateful for the team that is working on our “Front Line”. You truly are our heroes.

#DKSTRONG - Each letter is approximately 30” high using a 4m strip of Neopixel LEDs, an Adafruit Circuit Playground Express, and many 3M command strips to help conquer gravity. These LED strips are RGB which means they can easily be changed to any color or design. As you can see, two of the hearts are constantly emitting a rainbow design, while the rest is a constant red.

I am speaking on behalf of many people around the world by saying THANK YOU to our entire team. #DKSTRONG #MinnesotaProud #TeamDigikey #aworldofhearts

Stay Healthy!!
