HOLIDAY GIVING 2015
This holiday season, join Communities In Schools in celebrating our 30th Anniversary of supporting students in our community, helping them to stay in school and achieve in life. For the last three decades, Communities In Schools has impacted the lives of tens of thousands of children enrolled in Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools. Our system of support includes addressing critical needs, academic support, college/career readiness, mentoring, parent engagement, and service learning. Most importantly, we provide students with a caring relationship with an adult— something we think is critical in helping our kids paint a brighter future for themselves and their families.
In 2016, we will continue to provide direct services to nearly 6,000 students in Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools. The students and families we serve have the greatest need for intervention and support and, also, some of the greatest potential. We envision a community where every child has the resources to picture a bright future; a society where every child thrives. We have committed ourselves to this for 30 years— will you give today to ensure that we can surround every child with our network of support?
Help us brighten a child's future by making a donation or purchasing our holiday cards in honor or in memory of friends and family. We suggest a $10 per card minimum donation, or you may forego the cards and make a donation of any amount without receiving cards.
Happy Holidays to you and yours this season, and THANK YOU for thinking of Communities In Schools and the students we serve!

About This Year's Cards
The cover artwork for this year’s CIS Holiday Card is a collage of paintings by six CIS students from Winterfield Elementary School. The students were learning about artist Georgia O'Keefe in art teacher Kristen Eatman's class, and used O’Keefe’s paintings as inspiration for their own colorful flower paintings. Many thanks to Ms. Eatman and these talented kids!
