Connecting community needs and resources to serve the residents of Chandler
Initiated in 2010, the Let's Pull Together campaign asks residents for assistance in locating properties with overgrown weeds and acquiring authorization to perform yard maintenance. Groups of volunteers are then organized to remove the weeds.
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.
I-HELP is a program based upon faith organizations opening their facilities one night a week/or month to provide a safe place to sleep for homeless individuals. Local non-profit, AZCEND oversees the I-HELP program that offers dinner, a shower, a comfortable night’s sleep and breakfast for each client, 7 days a week.
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. Previous projects at Chandler Municipal Airport and landscape improvements in a downtown Chandler neighborhood.
City of Chandler, the Chandler Non-Profit Coalition (CNPC) and For Our City present the annual Chandler Volunteer Recognition Awards in honor of the tremendous impact and contributions volunteers bring to our community.
For Our City-Chandler has impacted the lives of many. Through its efforts, six community-driven projects have been initiated. Learn more about them by clicking below:
