The mission of Communities In Schools is to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.

School Supply Drive 2015

Our School Supply Drive (AKA Stuff the Bus) is our annual event to help get Lee County students prepare for the upcoming  school year by supplying them with much needed school supplies.  EVERY  year we collect school supplies that are distributed to students and teachers right here in Lee County.

You can drop off your school supplies at Walmart or the CIS office.
Please let us know if you would like to collect supplies at your business or church.  Last year CIS was able to give out thousands of
items that were donated by the community.

The campaign will run from July 27 until August 17; look for the YELLOW bins!

A supply list is available here: Stuff The Bus Flyer 15

No time to shop?  You can also make a monetary donation to
Communities in Schools designated for “Schools Supplies” to P.O.
Box 1132 Sanford, NC 27331.

Next time you are out and about: don’t leave our bins bare, donate some school supplies while you’re there!

Thank You! School bus
