OnTrac Delivering Hope to Local SchoolsDuring the month of September, OnTrac delivered backpacks and school supplies to 1,000 elementary, middle and high school students within the Western Region. Thirty-eight school districts and charities were touched by OnTrac Delivering Hope. OnTrac supplied 1,000 backpacks and distributed them to OnTrac operational facilities in Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Minnesota, Nebraska, Nevada, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah and Washington. School districts nearest to all of the facilities were chosen to participate. At each facility OnTrac employees donated and filled each backpack with supplies specific to students in kindergarten to 12th grade.

OnTrac is onboard with delivering hope to today’s youth and couldn’t be more excited to help these students succeed in the 2015-2016 school year and beyond. According to the City of Chandler’s website, “Hundreds of children go back to school each year without any school supplies [and] there are more than 8,000 students in the Chandler Unified School District [alone] who attend Title 1 schools.” City of Chandler Community Resources and Diversity Manager Leah Powell says, “It’s local businesses, like OnTrac, whose support helps to bring success to the families and communities that we serve.”

At OnTrac, it’s an important company-wide initiative to support the communities that we live and grow in. “We have a responsibility to give back to local communities and we feel very fortunate to be able to help those in need,” said Dennis Crosby, Commerce General Manager. “Education is everything and if we’re not involved with today’s youth, then we fail as a leader in the community.”
