For our September meeting, we will donate our in kind Donation of school supplies to CPS Students in Temporary Living Situations. This organization accepts all types of schools supplies. Our monetary donation will go to The American Cancer Society.
Educational Support for Students in Temporary Living Situations (STLS) offers assistance to students in pre-kindergarden-12th grade and their families who are experiencing homelessness. The STLS program is dedicated to ensuring that students in temporary living situations have equal access to the same free and appropriate educational opportunities as students who are permanently housed. This commitment to the educational rights of children and youth in temporary living situations applies to all services, programs and activities provided or made available by CPS.
The American Cancer Society (ACS) is a nationwide voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer. Its activities include providing grants to researchers, including funding 46 Nobel Laureate researchers, discovering the link between smoking and cancer, and serving one million callers every year through its National Cancer Information Center.
The Community Service Committee will be accepting school supplies at the door and please be on the lookout for the canisters on your tables during lunch for monetary donations.
With your support, the Community Service Committee hopes to make this the biggest year for donations in CALL history!
