PHOENIX, Ariz. – The Giving Back Committee of the Arizona Pest Professional Organization (AzPPO) donated $1,200 to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Phoenix in June.

“We were happy to bring the pest control industry together in support of the Ronald McDonald House, which provides lodging to children and their families while they undergo medical treatment in the Phoenix area,” said Bob Wagner, president of Wagner Pest Solutions and member of the Giving Back Committee.
 
A check was presented to Jared Leslie, development coordinator for the Ronald McDonald House Charities in Phoenix on June 19.
 
AzPPO held a fundraiser for the cause in April at the O.H.S.O. Eatery + nanoBrewery in Phoenix, where over 75 companies showed their support for the cause.
 
The Giving Back Committee is organizing similar fundraisers throughout the year to benefit the community.
