San Tan Crown Rotary Club members helped fill backpacks for the 2014 City of Chandler “Back to School” project at Fans Across America, a Chandler non-profit organization participating in this year’s program. The backpacks were distributed to students on July 20 at Chandler High School.
This was the largest school supply drive in Chandler’s history and provided an estimated 10,000 children with needed backpacks and school supplies. Operation Back to School Chandler – For Our Students is a collaborative effort involving the City of Chandler, CUSD and various non-profit organizations, churches, employers, business groups and others in the Chandler area. Donations of backpacks, school supplies, shoes, socks, underwear and uniforms were provided by individuals, families, service organizations, businesses and faith communities.
