Season shines spotlight on those who give back
This is the season of giving. And you don’t have to look very far into Arizona’s business community to find individuals and organizations who will leave Arizona better than they found it. And you don’t have to look any farther than the pages inside this issue of Az Business to find companies that care.
You’ll read about how the Valley of the Sun United Way has teamed up with dozens of businesses — including Wells Fargo, APS, JPMorgan Chase, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona, Freeport McMoRan and CopperPoint Mutual — to launch an education initiative that seeks to better prepare students in the Phoenix School District for success from birth to career.
You’ll also read about the banking industry in a special supplement about the Arizona Bankers Association. Read about how giving back to the communities the banks serve is weaved into the industry’s culture. And don’t miss learning about the Salvation Army, and how far it’s come in the 150 years since William Booth launched a mission to help feed the hungry and homeless who needed help in the abject poverty of London in 1865.
I hope you enjoy this issue of Az Business. If you still need to make your holiday plans, check out the holiday planning guide inside this issue.
Have a wonderful holiday season.
