Everyone who attended was asked to stay in their cars and officials brought the supplies over to their vehicles.

More than 50 backpacks were given away on Wednesday.

”Chandler CP is a community-oriented church, and we want to meet the needs of our community, whether it’s food, school supplies, spiritual needs, we want to supply those needs for our community,” said Gretchen Fleming.

If you weren’t able to make it, there were a few backpacks left. You can get one during the churches grab and go food pantry on Tuesday from 9 a.m. until 11 a.m.
