ICAN opens new doors The doors open to a new 21,000 square-
foot facility for nonprofit youth program ICAN at its grand opening celebration and ribbon-cutting ceremony from 4 to 7 p.m. Thu., May 10. The much-needed expansion for the at-risk youth program is at Folley Memorial Park at 650 E. Morelos St. in Chandler.
Local dignitaries, including Chandler
Mayor Jay Tibshraeny, will speak at the free public event. Light food and refreshments will be served. The new location includes six classrooms,
a learning center, a half gym, offices and several conference rooms available to both youth and the community.
Every day, more than 150 youths enter
ICAN’s doors. Its current 6,000-square-foot facility is in the downtown Chandler area in the path of the City of Chandler’s future municipal development plans. The expansion project was made possible through a capital campaign with support from the owners of Big Two Toyota/Scion, Chris and Caroline Hoeye, the City of Chandler, Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust, Dignity Health, Kemper and Ethel Marley Foundation, Arizona Sports and Tourism Authority, Phoenix Suns Charities, Dave Trout Charities, Kovach Metal Roofing, the Gila River Indian Community and many more.

Weed pulling effort blossom Workers needed to help restore homes
Chandler’s annual community weed-pulling campaign, Let’s Pull Together, runs through May 31 and carries a new distinction: it will be featured at the May conference of Neighborhoods, USA (ENUSA), a national nonprofit organization committed to strengthening neighborhoods, as a competitor for the title of the country’s Best Neighborhood Program. Let’s Pull Together, headed by Chandler City Councilman Kevin Hartke, is part of the
City’s Neighborhood Programs and For Our City-Chandler, which identifies and coordinates community service needs with the resources of service, business and church groups; neighborhood organizations; employers; and others. Initiated in 2010, the Let’s Pull Together campaign asks residents to help locate properties
with overgrown weeds and acquire authorization to perform yard maintenance. Groups of volunteers are organized to remove the weeds and are provided trash bags by the city. “This year’s war on weeds will build upon last year’s event,” Hartke says. “We saw 174
volunteers remove weeds from 21 Chandler homes. Especially rewarding is the opportunity to assist seniors and disabled residents who are unable to perform the work, and to improve the appearance of neighborhoods where vacant, foreclosed homes are overgrown with weeds.” Find information on controlling weeds at the University of Arizona Cooperative Extension
Service’s website at www.ag.arizona.edu/urbanipm/weeds/weedcontrol.html
. For information on becoming involved in Let’s Pull Together, contact Judy Ramos at 480-782-4348 or firstname.lastname@example.org
