Rotary Club of Sun Lakes (RCSL) Club President Jon Lyons announced that RCSL has collaborated with Classy Closets to “build out/install” cabinetry in designated rooms in select Chandler Unified School District (CUSD) schools. The installation of the cabinetry helps the schools to organize storage of supplies, such as backpacks, uniforms, water, food, snacks, laptops, and other supplies that have been donated/purchased for students and/or families in need. Often, the schools do not have adequate and/or organized storage options for such supplies.

A few years ago, RCSL did their first “build out” at Hamilton High School, and since then, RCSL has completed similar projects at San Marcos Elementary, Anderson Junior High, Humphrey Elementary, and, most recently, at Chandler High School. Rotarian, Dr. Craig Gilbert, CUSD Assistant Superintendent of Secondary Education, assists RSCL in the selection of schools for cabinetry installation.

The RCSL extends its gratitude to Classy Closets for sponsoring the installation work, while the club funds the labor and materials. To learn more about RCSL community service projects and/or membership, see
