Councilman Michael Johnson invites residents to join him for the first annual “Phoenix Tools-4-School” event. More than 2,000 bags of school supplies will be given away to students in grades K through 12 from 7 to 10 a.m. Saturday, July 27, at Lolo’s Chicken and Waffles, 1220 S. Central Ave. Families are encouraged to arrive early as bags will be given out on a first come, first serve basis.
“There are so many families in our communities who will benefit from this event. The supplies being distributed will offer peace-of-mind to struggling parents who want to do their best to get their kids ready for school,” said Councilman Johnson.
Kids ages 17 and younger also will be provided a free breakfast, sponsored by Lolo’s and Superstition Springs Chrysler Jeep Dodge.
Participating organizations include Second II None and the Soul Brothers Motorcycle Clubs, Unstoppable Divas Social Club, Arizona Informant and several local businesses and nonprofit agencies. More information is available at phoenixtools4school.com.
