Event organizers of the Tonto Street Church Back to School Giveaway raised nearly $2,000 in cash donations. The Phoenix personal injury law offices of Lerner and Rowe were among those who provided monetary donations.
Nearly 100 backpacks loaded with school supplies were provided to low income youth living in the Central City South community. Central City Precinct Officers and Housing Department staff joined volunteers from Tonto Street Church to pass out the backpacks and supplies.
Students attending the Tonto Street Church Back to School Giveaway were also able to participate in a youth rally and enjoy a free lunch.
