Spring Break Restorative Cleaning at Perkins K-8 in Barrio Logan

By Lee Jackson

On Wednesday March 29th, myself and a motivated group of 14 individuals from the WAXIE Sanitary Supply sales team descended on Perkins K-8 in the Barrio Logan section of San Diego to lend a hand to the custodians with their restorative cleaning.

As the morning began, the WAXIE San Diego team unloaded two trucks worth of commercial floor care equipment and restorative bathroom cleaners, and immediately got to work. Thanks to a prior survey of the school, it was determined that the areas of primary concern for the staff were the floors in a large multipurpose room, their kitchen, a teacher’s lounge, and multiple large restrooms.

Sharing Knowledge & Expertise Can Make a Big Impact

By Marklin Alford

Providing people with the tools and education they need to do a job successfully can be a challenge, but when it happens the rewards are immeasurable.

In 2013, with the encouragement of Charles Wax, I was recruited to be one of the instructors for the City College of San Francisco’s Custodial & Porter Training Course program, which trains and educates students for entry level employment as a custodian. Over 200 students take this course every semester.

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Kick-Off Breakfast 2014

By: Briana Smith, Social Media & Product Branding Specialist, WAXIE Sanitary Supply

“Let’s put the American Cancer Society out of business!” rallied Susan Taylor (Executive Director, External Affairs - Scripps Health) who closed out the annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Kick-Off Breakfast at the Town & Country Hotel in San Diego, CA yesterday morning.

That’d be nice, wouldn't it?

Since 1993, the American Cancer Society (ACS) has been fundraising towards this goal of eradicating breast cancer through their Making Strides Walks. In 2013, they had over 30,000 at the San Diego Making Strides Walk in Balboa Park raising over $945,000. WAXIE has been a proud supporter of the walk since 2007, and now all of our divisions are helping in the fight for more birthdays participating in nine different walks across the Western United States.

WAXIE Joins Forces with VPWC to Provide Needed Supplies to Veterans

By: Stacy Main, Senior Account Executive, WAXIE Sanitary Supply

WAXIE Ontario has joined with Veterans Partnering with Communities, Inc. (VPWC), which is an organization that helps support the men and women veterans and their families in our community. Hearing their stories of what they have seen, lived through and came home to is heartbreaking, so when presented with the opportunity to help give back to our veterans, WAXIE Ontario jumped at the opportunity. 

Our first community project was in August 2014 for the “SHEROS” or women veterans. When men and women are serving together they are considered “equal”, however no one ever realized that women are serving all over the world with NO feminine products provided to them. As women are coming in and out of the VA Hospitals they are leaving with no personal hygiene products either (as these are not covered by the government).
