Communities In Schools of Greenbrier County (CISGC) presented its dropout prevention program to the Federation of Defense & Corporate Counsel (FDCC) on Friday, Aug. 6. The FDCC is a national membership organization that hosts annual and semi-annual conferences in locations across the United States and chooses a community project in each conference district. “We were honored to be chosen for the FDCC’s community project in Greenbrier County”, CISGC’s Executive Director, Brittany Masters said.
Members from across the U.S. came to Greenbrier County and participated in donating school supplies to local youth in need. “It was heartwarming to showcase what our program is doing in Greenbrier County to attorneys from all over the nation”, said Masters. CISGC received 77 backpacks filled with school supplies along with additional boxes of supplies and monetary contributions. Masters said “It was in perfect alignment with our annual Stuff the Bus campaign in which we collect donated school supplies for children in every public school in the county”. “Stuff the Bus” is continuing now through Aug. 16. Those interested in donating can do so at Kroger in Rainelle, the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine’s Student Center, Love Child, and Factory Connection. A registry has been set up at Walmart.com, called “CISGC’s Stuff the Bus” and monetary donations can be made at www.cisgc.org/donate or P.O. Box 1188 Lewisburg, WV 24901.
Communities In Schools of Greenbrier County is a 501(c)3 and relies on the generosity and support of foundations and community members. CISGC could not carry out our mission “to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life” without partnerships such as this.
