 As we approach the end of the school year, many parents begin to worry about where next years school supplies will come from.  You can help be a part of reducing the stress and preparing kids to go back to school ready to learn.  

Chandler Christian Community Center works diligently to ensure that as many children as possible receive the necessary items to go back to school prepped with supplies, a smile and an excited attitude.  This is done in partnership with the Operation Back to School Chandler program, which does the distribution of items in a combined event designed to reach as many children as possible.  

Last year over 3,200 children received assistance with over 30 organizations and hundreds of volunteers coming together to make it happen.  

We need your help to make this year an even greater outreach.  Every backpack, school supply, and financial donation you make helps us reach more children.  You can drop off donations at CCCC

                          All checks / money orders should be made out to Chandler Christian Community Center and mailed to:

Chandler Christian Community Center,
PO Box 591
Chandler, AZ 85244-0591.
