Inside your Chandler utility bill, you will find a convenient way to help people in need in the community!
The Chandler Acts of Kindness donation program, or A-OK for short, was developed in July 2000, to give residents an opportunity to make a voluntary donation to assist needy individuals and families within the City of Chandler. The contributions collected go back into the community through a grant process to support a variety of human service programs which provide basic needs such as food, shelter, clothing, medical services, transportation, and utility bill assistance to low-income Chandler residents.
Thanks to the generosity of the community, the Acts of Kindness program continues to be a success. Every cent collected is put right back into the community to help individuals and families in need. We appreciate you helping to make the lives of your neighbors a little better.
For Fiscal Year 2018-19, the City of Chandler granted $56,666 to four nonprofits who provide vital services to low-income Chandler residents. The breakdown is as follows:
