CIS of Atlanta Site Coordinator Provides Financial Assistance Following a Family Tragedy
Carmel, our Site Coordinator at Kimberly Elementary School, was able to provide financial assistance for one of our families.
A few weeks ago, three of Carmel’s students faced a tragic family death involving three of their family members.
With the help and support of CIS of Atlanta, the family received $3,500 in financial assistance that will support them in rental, utility, and food assistance.
Additionally, each student in the family received a CIS of Atlanta-logoed backpack filled with school supplies and gift cards and toiletry kits.
With your help, we can provide laptops, warm meals, help ensure families avoid eviction, and provide all the additional supports that parents, administrators and teachers know will help their students be successful in the classrooms and beyond.
