More than 100 children from Chandler will be receiving their school supplies Friday thanks to the Fulton Homes Stuff the Bus campaign.
In early July, Fulton Homes and KEZ 99.9 radio station partnered together to collect school supplies for Chandler-based ICAN-Positive Programs for Youth.
ICAN provides free, comprehensive programs that empower youths to be productive, self-confident and responsible members of the community.
Shoppers from Chandler Fashion Center filled a full-size bus with school supplies that had been parked inside the Macy's Court. Shoppers chose a painted handprint from the bus that represented a child. That handprint contained a list of items that child needed for a successful school year.
Shoppers were also able to make a general donation of requested items such as pencils, pens, notebooks, backpacks, school uniforms and shoes.
"The response to this year's Stuff the Bus campaign has been phenomenal," Fulton Homes CEO Doug Fulton said. "People have answered the call and made a positive difference in children's lives. It's always a fun and exciting time when we present the kids with the school supplies."
