Welcome to the CIS Ready for School Drive!

July 8 - August 23, 2024

Let's make sure students return from summer break ready to learn!

You can ensure Communities In Schools students are Ready for School by donating, fundraising, and spreading the word so others do the same. For as little as $25, you will help provide CIS students with the supplies they need to be successful in school! From pencils and notebooks to counseling and crisis intervention, CIS direct care staff will help meet ALL student back-to-school needs.
