DCEH employees in Chandler recently participated in a Backpack Build for the Kids in Need Foundation which benefitted two charities: Operation Back to School Chandler and Pappas Kids. The team stuffed 110 backpacks full of school supplies to give to local children in need.
Last year in total, the Foundation was able to reach and serve 6.2 million students and 200,000 teachers.
"We believe that school supplies DO change lives, and we thank you for your help to accomplish our vision by supporting the School Ready Supplies program. We are extremely grateful and appreciate all you do for our kids. You, too, are a part of their lives," said Renay Dossman, executive director of the Kids in Need Foundation.
