Tank Jones, founder of Choices, commented on this community event, “We are a non-profit  501(c)3 organization that speaks to students around Maricopa County about creative ways to deal with life issues (peer pressure, bullying) while working hard, believing in themselves and giving their best effort in all they do. Our goal for “Get Back Packin’ For Schools” is to supply at least 100 fully supplied backpacks for each school. In order to accomplish that, we are seeking support from the citizens of the community and its businesses. Come on out and have a great time and support a great cause – our children.”
