Please take a moment to celebrate with our President/CEO, Dawn McCray on her 2017 Joan Shepp - Women of Substance and Style Award, which recognizes women who are making a difference in the community. Dawn was among some of the amazing “movers and shakers” in the Philadelphia area that were recognized at the annual event. Some of the honorees included were: Lady Brown, Dr. Susan Taylor, Jean Carne, Joyce Evans, Judge Renee Hughes, and Captain Michelle Baker-Bartlett. We are all so proud that Dawn is getting the recognition that she so greatly deserves!
CIS ELECT - A Day At The Zoo
What sound does a Lion make? Communities In Schools recently visited The Philadelphia Zoo through their generous Community Access Program. Communities In Schools ELECT Program participants spent the day exploring the zoo with their children. ELECT is an initiative supporting teen parents offered through a partnership with The School District of Philadelphia. Activities at the zoo included naming and finding as many types of animals as they could, practicing the sounds they make and even getting up close and personal with furry goat friends in the Zoo U area. Thank you to The Philadelphia Zoo for your commitment to supporting organizations like Communities In Schools of Philadelphia and the children and families we serve!
