School Supply Drive


Step One (pre-work) – assign different members of your group to collect or purchase different categories of school supplies.

Step Two – set a date for folks to bring their donations in and make it a party!

Step Three – one of the events at the party is an assembly project.  You may want to put school supplies in individual book bags or in clearly labeled boxes.

Step Four – Set up a delivery day and time.  You may contact one of the Site Coordinators directly via email (addresses are on this website) or you can email CIS Administrator, Jay Swedenborg.

Step Five – make the delivery and meet a CIS staff member!
