Operation Back to School Chandler will take place on July 21 at Chandler High School- 350 N. Arizona Ave. Operation Back to School is an annual city-wide effort to supply Chandler students with backpacks, school supplies, shoes, socks, underwear, haircuts, and more.
You or your organization can become a sponsor by donating new needed items. For more information, visit backtoschoolchandler.org.
There are opportunities to be involved on many levels including sponsorship opportunities, hosting a drive at work, making a financial contribution, donating supplies or volunteering.
Donations will be accepted through July 11, and a list of locations are posted online. Donation sites will also be collecting shoes, uniform tops (red shirts are most common) socks and underwear.
For those unable to shop for supplies, cash donations can be made below. A $30 donation will supply a child with a backpack filled with spiral notebooks, pencils, pens, erasers, highlighters, markers, index cards, crayons, glue sticks, filler paper, folders, construction paper, composition books, dry erase markers, colored pencils, a pencil case and ruler.
Local businesses and organizations can get involved by contributing funding at a number of different sponsorship levels. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information, or call 480-782-2214.
