Communities in Schools of Atlanta Emergency Fund
Due to the current health crisis, Communities in Schools of Atlanta has cancelled the 16th annual Choose Success event, which serves as a celebration of our students and a significant fundraiser for our mission. CIS of Atlanta’s funding is increasingly critical as this health and economic crisis is predicted to disproportionately impact the students and families CIS of Atlanta serves.
In response, we are redirecting our focus to Emergency Fundraising to assist our 27,000 local students in need. We ask our community to bring compassion and support to Atlanta’s schools, students and families during these uncertain times.
For $5000 Provide assistance for healthcare needs.
For $1000 Provide housing assistance, including emergency rent payments.
For $500 Provide assistance with utilities and other essential services.
For $250 Provide a grocery store gift card to TEN families in need.
For $25 Provide similar assistance to ONE family.
Consider students whose only meals come from schools.
Consider parents unable to work due to restaurant and business closures –
and may not be able to pay for rent, utilities or groceries.
Consider families who don’t have access to healthcare services.
And, consider the months families may be impacted – and do what you can to help.
Donate to the community most in need today.
