Branch manager Anthony Molina from our East Tucson service office, accompanied by limo driver Ron Pratt and marketing specialist Keanu Nelson, met with children from the summer program at Ana Henry Elementary to discuss bugs. After the presentations the kids got a chance to see the inside of the limo and were given gift bags chock-full of Truly Nolen items.
On December 22nd, 2014 we really wanted to make a big impact on a family’s life. We decided to “Adopt-a-family” for the holidays and make sure they had an opportunity to enjoy them with no stress. We went grocery shopping, wrapped all their presents, and personally delivered them to the family. The amount of tears shed from everyone there was the most touching feeling any of our team had in all the events we have done. We are excited to participate in this event again for many years to come!
On October 24th, 2014 a group of our team went out to Sabino Canyon and Tanque Verde to show our customers a BIG Thanks. We bought breakfast for over 5 families coming into the McDonald’s on the corner and received a tremendous amount of gratitude, including the manager of the store. He told us “This is the company that I would do business with, giving back to the community is great!”. We were humbled by the statements and look forward to many more breakfasts with the citizens in Tucson.
On October 18th, 2014 we partnered up with Long Realty and adopted Camino Loma Alta Road in Vail, AZ. We walked the 1 1/2 mile stretch finding bottles, plastics, paper, and lots of other debris that didn’t belong. We were able to join some of the other citizens of Vail and work as a team to make the road look beautiful. We plan on doing this every year with the Vail Preservation Society and are looking forward to adopting more roads with them.
On August 25th, 2014 we had the opportunity to help a less fortunate family in dire need of removing some nasty critters from their home. The entire branch went out to a home with a mother and four children that financially couldn’t afford the expensive cost of remediation. We spent over 30 man hours performing service and making sure that their family could now sleep safe at night and not have to worry about bites.
On April 22nd, 2014 we attended a park for our community event. We were surprised to find a school of kids there on a field trip / picnic. We began our clean up with trash bags and gloves. The team split up and spread out through across the park. We collected over 7 full trashbags and also found a bee hive at the park very close to the kids. We informed all the teachers to ensure they keep the kids away and also notified the local parks and rec crew about the concern. We even had a fun little race prior to helping out our community and ensuring a safe environment for the animals at the park and the citizens who visit it!
