One in a Million Award recipient: Communities in Schools of The Midlands
Where they are multiplying good: Columbia, South Carolina
How they are multiplying good: They are One in a Million. When schools closed, Communities In Schools of the Midlands jumped right in to help school sites get learning packets to students. Employees delivered work packets, called parents to assist students with getting the work done and returned packets back to the schools. They delivered school supplies, cleaning and hygiene items, and emergency food to families in need. Staff facilitated virtual meetings with students and parents to provide social and emotional support and they created a Facebook web page full of resources for parents to help navigate during this challenging time. With the help of our community partners, CISM provides diapers, snacks, and activities for babies and children as well as emergency funds for parents to purchase additional items they need. Going above and beyond, the CISM staff also volunteers to assist with weekly meal distribution for the local school district.
