Communities in Schools of the Midlands are recipients of the Multiplying Good One in a Million Award in recognition of their generous, kind, and heroic services to others.
When schools closed, Communities In Schools of the Midlands jumped right in to help school sites get learning packets to students. Employees delivered work packets, called parents to assist students with getting the work done and returned packets back to the schools. Our team of Site Coordinators were on the front lines delivering school supplies, cleaning and hygiene items, and emergency food to families in need.
The team also facilitated virtual meetings with students and parents to provide social and emotional support and created a Facebook web page full of resources for parents to help them navigate during this challenging time. With the ongoing help of our community partners, CISM provides snack packages and activities for children and youth as well as created a emergency funds for parents to purchase additional items they need due to job and loss of wages. The organization also received over 1,000 diapers from a local diaper bank Power in Changing, for teen parents enrolled in their high school dropout prevention program services.
Going above and beyond, the CISM staff also volunteers to assist with meal distribution and supplies for local school districts and other charitable organizations in the Midlands that serve the same population.
