Western Broadband and San Tan Crown Rotary team up to raise donations for Fans Across America
Sun Lakes Splash
Western Broadband and San Tan Rotary club have partnered to raise donations for Fans Across America, a charitable organization in Chandler that helps homeless students within the Chandler School District. San Tan Crown Rotary, formally the Sun Lakes Afternoon Fotary Club, presented over $300 raised by the club to George Macedon, the charity's Director at their regular 5:30 Thursday meeting held at the Charity's location in Chandler. Western Broadband has a donation box in their lobby to collect clothes, tolietries, personal hygene items, dental care products, hair care products, household items and cash. These donated items will allow Fans to provide temporary daily living assistance to Homeless Student and Family in Transition. Western Broadband is located at 9666 E Riggs Road, Suite #108 her in Sun Lakes. Lobby hours are 8AM to 5PM Monday through Friday.
According to Macedon:"Unfortunately we are witnessing the "new poor", many families that were once economically secure in their recent past but as a result of the hard economic times have lost careers, homes, possessions and have depleted all savings and personal resources just to survive. There is one common goal however, keeping their children in school for they know the value of an education. Fans Across America started the Family in Transition and Homeless Students Program to assist a population that had needs that are not being met through Federal or other social programs. The Locker Room, established in 2011, acts as the intake, processing and distribution center for donations and families. On any given day there are in excess of 225 Homeless Families in Transition and over 450 Homeless Students enrolled fulltime in the Chandler Unified School District."
