We Love Arizona: What’s Happening in August

It’s no secret; we LOVE Arizona! That is why you can find us in nearly every corner of this great state. We know being a part of the community goes so much deeper than just living and working there. Our PTA family is devoted to giving back and being active in our community. In fact, last year, over 700 hours were donated to the schools in our communities.
