OnTrac is onboard with delivering hope to today’s youth and couldn’t be more excited to help these students succeed in the 2015-2016 school year and beyond. According to the City of Chandler’s website, “Hundreds of children go back to school each year without any school supplies [and] there are more than 8,000 students in the Chandler Unified School District [alone] who attend Title 1 schools.” City of Chandler Community Resources and Diversity Manager Leah Powell says, “It’s local businesses, like OnTrac, whose support helps to bring success to the families and communities that we serve.”
Locally, Ontrac provided 156 backpacks throughout Chandler, Phoenix and Tucson. The school districts impacted are Chandler Unified School District, Roosevelt School District and Sunnyside Unified School District. At OnTrac, it’s an important company-wide initiative to support the communities that we live and grow in. “OnTrac is investing in today’s youth for tomorrow’s leaders and I’m glad to be a part of it,” said Tim Barber, Phoenix General Manager. “The amount of fun we had as a team to put together the backpacks was icing on the cake.”
