About the Artist
Our joyous Holiday Card artwork this year is by Zemaya, a 2nd grader in CIS at Winterfield Elementary School. She's an excellent student with a shy, sweet smile that you instantly fall in love with. She is very friendly and creative and loves to tell stories. CIS has helped Zemaya and her two cousins, also in CIS at Winterfield, with school uniforms, supplies, and other caring support.

Share the Joy
Thanks to donors like you and our many dedicated community partners, over 6,000 students enrolled in Communities In Schools of Charlotte-Mecklenburg this year will benefit from the CIS “safety net” that includes case management, critical needs and other support services, as well as academic support and enrichment, parent engagement, community service, and college/career readiness activities. Most important are the relationships formed between CIS staff, students, parents, and volunteers, which result in life-changing experiences and opportunities for our students that they otherwise might never have. By making a donation or purchasing our holiday cards in honor or in memory of family, friends, and colleagues, you will be "sharing the joy" with local children who have some of the greatest needs but the fewest resources.
Here's how your gift can make a difference for CIS students:
|$50||Clothing or school uniforms and hygiene items for two students.|
|$100||Nutritious snacks for after-school and weekends for five students.|
|$250||College access and/or career readiness counseling for eight students.|
|$500||Academic support and enrichment for 10 students.|
|$800||The entire CIS "safety net" for one student during the academic year.|
