It’s about the feeling you get when giving back to the community and that actions do matter.
Flagstaff Local is an ongoing community movement encouraging and celebrating residents that choose to support Flagstaff and shop, volunteer, be eco-friendly, donate, support education, mentor and vote.
Flagstaff residents accomplish great things every single day. Take the pledge by signing up at flagstafflocal.com. It’s simple!
Log in to flagstafflocal.com.
Enter information: first and last name, email address, password.

After you take the pledge, share all your good doings on your social platforms and tag ours at Twitter: @flagstafflocal, Instagram: @flaglocal, Facebook: Flagstaff Local, Hashtags: #MyactionsMatter, #FlagstaffLocal.
Be eco-friendly: Purchase sustainable products, re-use and recycle, pick up trash when walking or hiking, work with sustainability organizations on how to make your home or office eco-friendlier, choose to bike, carpool or take the bus.
Shop Flagstaff: Learn about local businesses and get to know the community members that work there, use local services, bank locally and support restaurants that source part or all of their product locally.
Support education: Assist and encourage students with virtual learning, read to kids and/or utilize library resources.
Donate: Drop-off items at Goodwill or non-perishable food items at the Flagstaff Family Food Center.
Vote: Register to vote, educate yourself about the candidates and issues, cast your vote in person or by mail.
Choosing to shop Flagstaff has many benefits to residents. For instance, a local purchase generates revenue that helps support parks and recreation, public safety, workforce and much more. Specifically, purchasing a cup of coffee from a neighborhood coffee house, or a vehicle from a Flagstaff dealership, directly results in collected taxes, which provide for better Flagstaff parks, beautification programs and much more.
When residents engage and take part, it is making a difference and connecting what is loved about Flagstaff and living here with everyday actions. Flagstaff Citizen of the Year and volunteer Gene Munger said, “My most rewarding time is reading to young children at our local schools, and if you have that opportunity, it will change your life forever.”
City of Flagstaff Economic Vitality Director Heidi Hansen said, “It’s about the feeling you get when giving back to the community and that actions do matter. You love Flagstaff. We love Flagstaff. Let’s come together, take the pledge, and most importantly, share our actions, and be the city where people continue to visit, discover, grow and thrive.”
To qualify for Flagstaff local rewards, residents must live within the Flagstaff Unified School District boundary and actions must occur within Flagstaff city limits.
Flagstaff Local – My Actions Matter is brought to you by the City of Flagstaff to highlight the importance of keeping our collective actions local. FBN
