Communities in Schools is Seeking Donations of School Supplies for High School Students

Jun 29 2017

Communities In Schools of Carrollton City and Carroll County is seeking help from the community to ensure our high school students have a successful school year. Last year CIS of Carrollton served 320 case managed students and impacted thousands of other students through Tier I, or whole school services, that often included school supply closets, clothing closets, food pantries, and community partners that educated students on job skills, resume writing, healthy dating habits, and assisted with mock interviews, college tours, and family game nights.  These services were offered in the six high schools and 1 middle school and we plan to serve just as many students, if not more, during the 2017-2018 school year.  Our goal this summer is for all students to have access to the "Tools" they need for success, this allows students and their families to focus on what's really important, education. 

This year CIS has partnered with Target of Carrollton for our Tools for Teen Success Campaign.  Target is graciously giving a 15% discount on school supplies purchased in store and donated in house to CIS; all you have to do is visit customer service to request the coupon code.  If you had rather purchase supplies online, Target has made it easy by setting up a school list for CIS that can be shipped directly to our office! 

If you'd like to donate but shop with other stores, you can find donation boxes set up with the following community partners: Carroll County Chamber of Commerce, East Carrollton Recreation Center, Carroll County Sheriff Office,West GA Technical College, Carroll County Courthouse, Neva Lomason Memorial Library, Carrollton Police Department, Walker Cadillac, Chick-Fil-A, and Club Fitness.

If you'd like to donate but don't necessarily want to shop, then please visit our website ciscarroll.com and make a donation using PayPal.  Your donation can make a difference in the lives of our students, and could be the determining factor for whether or not a student stays in school.
