May Evening Mixer Recap: Clean Air Cab

4517This month, Clean Air Cab hosted our May Mixer at the Adalante Healthcare in Mesa. We began our evening mixer with a Membership 101 Session, which is a free crash-course overview of Local First Arizona benefits. Whether you’ve just joined or have been a member for years, these monthly sessions offer great insights about becoming more involved with Local First Arizona and the local movement. Our next Member 101 Session will be June 5th, 10:00 – 10:30 a.m. via webinar. Click here to register. Culinary Works, a program designed by the Southwest Autism Research and Resource Center, prepared the delicious spread for our members. Culinary Works is a hands-on training program and entrepreneurial venture, “designed to engage young adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder in every aspect of food production in a commercial kitchen.” (SARRC) Programs like Culinary Works are vitally important in providing futures and opportunities for a better Arizona.

The rebate program rewards Local First Arizona members who switch their office supply company to Wist Office Supplies. This quarter, LFA members like Clean Air Cab, InfusionSoft and CopperPoint Mutual Insurance, contributed to our donation of $2,268.96 to Circle the City!

As the state’s first medical respite care center, Circle the City is able to provide  patients with a place to heal after their release from the hospital through partnerships and support from the community.

We want to thank Clean Air Cab for hosting, Culinary Works for the delightfully delicious spread, and Adalante Healthcare for allowing us the space!
