The November networking mixer for Tucson members was a great success. Hacienda del Sol Guest Ranch Resort was a terrific host to the 60+ business owners and Local First staff and board members who came to mix and mingle. It was a lovely warm fall evening at the beautiful resort.
During the mixer Wist Office Products and Local First Arizona presented a rebate check to Ben's Bells Director Jeannette Mare. Ben's Bells is now in over 200 schools, reaching children of all ages with its Be Kind message. This unique organization is spreading kindness, hope and courage to combat bullying and violence among the youngest members of our communities.
Wist partnered with Local First Arizona years ago to begin a rebate program. Four percent of all LFA member purchases is given to Local First which then selects a local charity doing great work to better our community each quarter to give the funds to. Because of LFA members who buy their office products from Wist, Ben's Bells received more than $2,200.
