How You Can Help

In Kind Gifts

For many of our Communities In Schools students, having essential tools and resources to be successful in school and being exposed to cultural and other learning opportunities that broaden dreams would not be possible without CIS. Your gift of goods and services goes a long way towards helping us provide a comprehensive programming model that enriches students and empowers them to stay in school and achieve in life.

Items needed range from personal hygiene products, new clothing and school uniforms to opportunities for job shadowing, career exploration, and enrichment via tickets to cultural events, museums or athletic venues for use as incentives and recognition.
