Pyxl, a digital marketing firm that recently expanded to Tempe, announced today that Free Arts for Abused Children of Arizona, a nonprofit organization that brings the healing powers of the creative arts to abused, neglected and homeless children, has won a $50,000 web design and development package.
“We are absolutely thrilled to be chosen for the $50,000 web package,” said Barb DuVal Fenster, Executive Director of Free Arts of Arizona. “The creative arts provide a way for these youth to identify their emotions and express them through a positive medium.
