Heat Relief

In partnership with the Chandler Salvation Army, For Our City – Chandler and the City of Chandler helps those in need during the intense Arizona summers by collecting water bottles, sunscreen and other sun protection.

Let's Pull Together

Let's Pull Together

Through everyday interactions with Chandler residents, city staff often learn of residents who could use an extra hand such as seniors, persons with disabilities, veterans, and families experiencing financial hardships.

Chandler is a compassionate city with many organizations, churches, businesses and neighbors committed to helping each other.

The Let's Pull Together Volunteer Program evolved to help connect Chandler residents in need with those who wish to serve. Please contact Neighborhood Programs for more information.
