KTAR’s Main Street Minute focuses on local businesses that are hiring, opening and hosting events across the community. Stories air each weekday on KTAR at 7:27 a.m.

The Wilde Wealth Management Group helped make this Christmas special for more than 1,000 Valley children after it donated 400 toys and more than $8,000 to Toys For Tots.

A local non-profit is expanding its work headquarters. Food For The Hungry just purchased the Phoenix Art Building near 16th Street and Indian School. The new location will be designed to help accommodate a growing staff, which will increase to 150 local employees and 3,000 global employees in 2018.

Firehouse Subs’ public safety foundation recently awarded the Surprise Fire-Medical Department a nearly $15,000 mechanical CPR device. This will be installed on the department’s primary ambulance response unit to better patient outcomes.
