2015 Back to School Tools

Back to School Tools 2015

This is the fifth year Lerner and Rowe Gives Back has joined other local businesses in proudly sponsoring Mix 96.9 Back to School Tools, a school supply drive for underpriviledged children throughout Phoenix who are in need of basic items like backpacks, pens, markers and hygiene items.This year’s Back to School Tools directly benefits Worldly Kids, a new charitable foundation dedicated to helping the top ten title one schools in Tempe and Phoenix.

It is Worldly Kid’s mission to help homeless children focus on their education in an effort to break the cycle of living on the streets and make the most of their future. The homeless youth that Worldly Kid’s sponsor live in shelters, motels, cars, and empty buildings, leaving them unable to get the supplies they need.

We ask that you to join Lerner and Rowe Gives Back and help make a difference in the lives of these children by donating much needed school supplies, clothing, hygiene items and healthy snacks to this worthy cause.
