Going The Extra Mile

At Emerson Academy, one of the K-8 grade schools CIS serves in the Dayton area, the Site Coordinator cultivates relationships with donors in the community. This holiday season, the Site Coordinator encouraged local donors to sponsor families at Emerson Academy for Christmas. A very generous donor fulfilled an entire wish list for a family with two children. They received clothing, toys, a remote-control truck, and many other goodies! Our CIS Site Coordinators often go the extra mile by building relationships with community partners to augment what they are able to do to support students in-schools during the day. The image below shows some of the gifts that these CIS students received.
