The city of Chandler is partnering with For Our City-Chandler to celebrate Chandler Gives week from April 6-10 and is asking the community to make a donation of any amount to nonprofits in need due to the coronavirus outbreak.

“Chandler’s residents are known for their generosity, especially to those in need,” Mayor Kevin Hartke said. “Due to the coronavirus impacting people’s livelihoods, we’re seeing more people in needm and we are asking for everyone’s help to get through this. All donations—small or large—are welcomed and greatly appreciated.”


The For Our City-Chandler nonprofits most affected by COVID-19 include About Care, AZCEND, Boys and Girls Clubs of the East Valley, Chandler CARE Center, East Valley Jewish Community Center, FANS Across America, ICAN, Matthew's Crossing, Neighbors Who Care, Resurrection Street Ministries, Salvation Army and the YMCA. Donations can be made online. Donations also can be made directly to a nonprofit of choice at the For Our City-Chandler donation website.

The following supply donation options also will be accepted at the Chandler Salvation Army, 85 E. Saragosa St.:

  • gift cards from local Chandler restaurants for clients currently staying in homeless shelter;

  • diapers (sizes 4, 5 and 6) for families in need;

  • pocket hand sanitizers for people experiencing homelessness; and
