For Our City Chandler is in the process of planning for how we can help in emergency situations, such as the one that happened in the summer of 2017, when an apartment complex lost AC for over a week and multiple families were displaced.

FOC - Chandler will help mold a plan for food, resources, transportation, etc during extreme heat emergency situations in Chandler.  


The project is still in the planning stages.  For more information, contact riann.balch@chandleraz.gov.

**NEW FOC PROJECT**

Chandler nonprofit organizations that conduct food & gift drives during the holiday season began collaborating on their individual drives in order to fully utilize resources, reduce duplication efforts and expand the reach of those we all could help. 

Hundreds of residents gather together on National Make a Difference day, we call it For Our City Day, to assist with neighborhood projects in the community.

City of Chandler and For Our City present the annual Chandler Volunteer Recognition Awards in honor of the tremendous impact and contributions volunteers bring to our community.
