Communities in Schools – @cisnational – is an organization that is #allinforkids. Each year our local CIS holds a fundraiser on Derby Day called Hats and Hooves. The event is a lot of fun and raises a lot of money for CIS Coweta County where I live. More importantly, their model of helping impoverished and at risk children really works. Marie and I are honored to be able to support this fine organization. We also get to serve as mentors to 2nd, 4th and 5th grade students at a local Title I school through CIS. Those kids are the highlight of our week!
If you are looking to impact young lives in a very positive way, there are great ways to do that: The Boys and Girls Club, Scouting, and Communities in Schools. They all do fantastic work. They each are a “horse you can bet on” with the confidence that the return will be far greater than your investment!
