At Tito's Handmade Vodka, giving back has always been a core value of the company.
Team Tito's spent quality time with one another during our February Sales and Service trip in Scottsdale, Arizona. While we enjoyed each other's company, we also extended a helping hand to spread some Tito's love beyond our hometown of Austin, Texas.
More than 200 Tito’s team members and their guests gave back to the community of Scottsdale by volunteering at six local organizations in Arizona. To shine some light on the beautiful community of Scottsdale, here's a recap of how Team Tito's extended a helping hand.
St. Mary's Food Bank
Team Tito's worked diligently packaging 2,880 emergency food boxes at St. Mary's Food Bank. Each box packed provided 15 meals for families in need, equaling 43,200 meals in total!
St. Mary's Food Bank is a community-based organization that aims to eliminate hunger through volunteerism and donations. The organization serves two-thirds of Arizona by feeding families and individuals in need.
Desert Botanical Garden
A group of volunteers with Team Tito's visited the Desert Botanical Garden to spread some love by planting 40 trays of milkweed seeds. The milkweeds will be distributed to landowners and schools, and will help boost the monarch population in Scottsdale.
Military Assistance Mission
Volunteers with Team Tito's stopped by the Military Assistance Mission to help organize and store donations for the organizations upcoming events that benefit children of United States Armed Forces families.
Arizona's Military Assistance Mission provides financial and moral aid to active duty military, veterans, and their families.
Keep Scottsdale Beautiful
Living in the desert's harsh climate can be challenging when it comes to gardening, so the Tito's team gave an elderly woman's yard some TLC. Volunteers transformed her yard by planting sustainable plants that will survive year-round.
Maricopa Animal Care & Control
At Tito's, our canine counterparts are our best friends, so visiting a local shelter was a paw-fect idea. Vodka For Dog People volunteers swung by the Maricopa County Animal Care & Control (MCACC) where they walked and played with four-legged friends and renovated the center through landscaping and mural-painting.
The MCACC shelter opens its doors to stray dogs and cats and aims to give them a fur-ever home. The shelter is also a resource for animals to get licensed, rabies vaccinations, and get spayed or neutered.
McDowell Sonoran Conservancy
Team Tito's volunteers laced up their hiking boots and trekked one mile through the McDowell Sonoran Conservancy to improve their trails. Volunteers trimmed overgrown vegetation and removed invasive plants that blocked the conservancy's beautiful trails.
The McDowell Sonoran Conservancy stretches 30,580 acres and works closely with the City of Scottsdale and its volunteers to help protect and keep the land beautiful. The conservancy has more than 650 volunteers that help locals stay informed about the Sonoran Desert and enjoy trails stretching nearly 195 miles.
