On June 24th, 2021, ARG celebrated its 30th year in business. Technology is a dynamic space, and we are humbled to not only survive this long but to be thriving. Over the years, ARG has consistently participated in Random Acts of Kindness so, it seemed fitting that in celebration of reaching this milestone we spend the day giving back to the communities that have been so good to us. After a quick meeting, almost 100 of our teammates were sent out to make the world a better place.
