Our members trust us. We will not advertise products, brands or services that we deem to be offensive or against the core values of Ocotillo Friends. This benefits both our advertisers and our community.
A comment from Randy L. Walters, owner of Wimpy’s Paradise in downtown Chandler. “So proud to be a part of this group and my restaurant was saved literally by the kindness, support and generosity of this group! Before I became a part of this amazing group or met a single member someone shared in this group my open, honest and difficult request for customers that I had only posted on my own page! Within days there were lines out the door, donations given by complete strangers and I was able to keep my doors open! And the support has continued since then! I do my best to pay it forward and give while still working to repay many that I still owe for their work and services provided. It’s a slow process but it is a process that Ocotillo friends made possible. Thank you to the founders and members, my family and I are forever grateful for your kindness, and continued support! Randy, owner Wimpy’s Paradise!”
A comment from T.c. Gould of Dirt Done Cheap Carpet Cleaning. “Love Ocotillo Friends and what they have done for my family and I with our small Business through the years. We will always be thankful and do special things for this community before any other group out there”.
