We’re excited to share that on Sunday, November 17th, 2013 Danny Howard, a long-time friend of David Wax, competed in and completed the 2013 IRONMAN Arizona Triathlon. He represented WAXIE (unbeknownst to us) in the cycling portion of the race with WAXIE’s blue & yellow colors and logo on his jersey.
The Triathlon started out with a 2.4 mile swim in Tempe Town Lake, which progresses into a 112 mile bike course through the Sonoran Desert, and then ending in a full 26.2 marathon run around Tempe Town Lake and Papago Park. Danny completed the courses in a very respectable time 13:52:10 (hr:min:sec).
A CPA in the Los Angeles area, Danny trained over the past year in preparation for the Phoenix-based event. We salute Danny Howard on his well earned achievement and for wearing WAXIE's colors with pride.
Thank you to Alex Zimmer & Danny for sharing photos!

On the morning of Saturday, November 16th, several of WAXIE’s Tucson employees, their guests, and employees from other organizations volunteered their time at the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona.
The WAXIE employees helped pack emergency food boxes for Southern Arizona residents. The volunteers spent three hours packing over 2600 boxes of food, which weighed a total of 40,000 lbs! This opportunity proved to be a rewarding way for our employees to get involved in fighting hunger, and a great way for them to meet other like-minded individuals.
Some facts about Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona:
• They distribute enough food for 62,800 meals a day
• For every $1.00 donated, they can distribute nearly $9.00 worth of food
• Their programs assist people within 23,106 square miles of Southern Arizona

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
San Diego, CA - WAXIE Sanitary Supply is pleased to announce several leadership changes in the organization.
New Year, New Predictions
The beginning of each year is a natural time to take a quick look back and take inventory of what has happened in the preceding year, and then attempt to make some educated predictions for what might be expected to happen in the coming year. And since sustainability remains such a vital topic of interest, it makes sense for us to identify some green cleaning trends to watch for in 2012.
