Mix 96 Back to School Tools Drive

Lerner & Rowe Injury Attorneys

Back-to-School Tools is a community effort with Lerner and Rowe, Mix 96.9 and Children First Academy. Children First Academy has two campuses, Phoenix and Tempe, that focuses on serving underprivileged children and at risk youth. The goal of the partnership is to raise much needed school supplies for the children and “other” items needed for the students such as, clothes, food, nursing office supplies and much more. With the help of Kevin Rowe, this program is in its third year and each year it grows exponentially!

In 2011 we were able to equip over 600 students with all their back to school needs from a backpack to all the school supplies.

Our students do not have the opportunity that many students in the valley do to go shopping for their supplies. By teaming with Learner and Rowe and Mix 96.9, we were able to open up a “store” in our cafeteria where our students were able to go shopping for their school supplies. The joy on their faces when they are able to walk out with a backpack and their school supplies is priceless.

Thank you to Kevin Rowe and the team at Lerner and Rowe for continuing to support Back to Schools Tools and making it a success every year. Without you, some children may not get the tools they need to get a successful education. Thank you Kevin, we appreciate all you have done.
