|Santan Junior High (2020-2021)|
Santan Junior High student council (STUCO) collected Fry's Gift Cards to help support Chandler Care Center's Thanksgiving distribution. By collecting gift cards, they were able to successfully and safely help families in need. Students brought in gift cards they purchased from Fry's Marketplace and donated them to student council. From there, Santan's STUCO was able to buy from the list of supplies and package a great Thanksgiving dinner for the families who needed it the most. Thanks to Santan's generous students and staff, they were able to raise a total of $1,435! Santan was able to package and donate 122 Thanksgiving meals for the Chandler Care Center.
