Communities in Schools Atlanta shared a story with HT of a student whose family is facing some challenges. The student is in a constant state of transition as her mother does not have stable housing, and the student has been coming to school in the same clothes or wearing clothes that appeared to be for an adult. Despite the hardships, she is an excellent student and one of the top readers in her class.
When we heard this story we knew we could help. With the donations of our supporters we were able to give this student a gift that met her needs and put the biggest smile on her face!
Shawn was able to deliver some treasures to the student and got to meet her face to face who was very happy and excited to be receiving clothing and school supplies. Additionally Shawn was able to meet with two CIS Staff Members on-site at Toomer Elementary.
Thanks to donations from our supporters we were able to have a true impact on a student in our own community.
