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 – Help CIS Stuff the Bus!

Our School Supply Drive (AKA Stuff the Bus) is our annual event to help get Lee County students prepared  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 C County.

Communities In Schools of Lee County will have multiple drop off locations this year: Walmart, all three Walgreens locations, BB& T (Spring Lane or Horner Blvd) and the CIS office.

The campaign will run from July 28 until August 22; look for the YELLOW bins at the front of each location to drop your supplies into!

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!

Help us to kick off the school year by donating school supplies to ensure student success!
