“When the going gets weird, the weird get going.”
That’s our motto these days. We want to thank you from deep in our hearts for your donations of food and funds to help us sustain our COVID-19 food drive. To date, we have collected over $1,500 in food and donations. On Wednesday, we delivered to 19 families. We are just getting started. We wish to thank Ms. Cheryl Ryder and her colleagues at Cone Health for kicking us off with a $350 donation of food. In addition, our remarkable Board and Advisory Council have joined forces to lead the charge from the volunteer leadership. The “Grab and Go” stations established by Guilford County Schools and satellite stations sponsored by BackPack Beginnings and other community partners promise to ensure that no child/family goes hungry.
Increased attendance, improved behavior and satisfactory coursework, in addition to parent and family engagement, are the cornerstones of our work. Our evidence-based approach, adapted to meet each school's unique needs, is the basis for our success. Many children face challenges both inside and outside the classroom. Through a school-based site coordinator, Communities In Schools strategically aligns and delivers needed resources so that students can focus on learning.
