June 27th and July 11th
In June/July volunteers are needed to help inventory existing supplies at our Back to School warehouse. Groups of approx. 20+ volunteers help get the area ready for stuffing and begin to pack the backpacks with donated supplies according to age level.
This volunteer opportunity is not for the faint of heart. Heavy lifting and physical activity in the hot Arizona sun is the mission of the day. Thousands of backpacks and supplies are transferred from Chandler High's Auto Bay to the Chandler High event sites. We will set-up everything in anticipation of the event the next day. Supplies are unloaded, directional banners are secured, tables are set out and the following areas are set-up: backpacks by grade level, socks/underwear, uniforms, non-profit area, haircuts and shoes.
150+ volunteers must register to help in the event day. Volunteer opportunities include: Line Monitors, Non-Profit Area, Registration, Distribution, Runners, Guides (Spanish is helpful), Event Clean-up & Misc. Duties. Volunteer job descriptions can be found on the sign up page. Click below for more details.
