Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Towne Realty partnered with Communities In Schools of Hampton Roads (CISO) to feed 110 families this holiday season. Goods—including gift cards for turkeys—were collected at BHHS Towne Realty’s 13 sales offices in November and then distributed to families in Portsmouth, Norfolk, Virginia Beach and Hampton before Thanksgiving. Thanks to the abundance of donations, nonperishable items that we not consumed over Thanksgiving will be distributed for the Christmas holiday.
The Williamsburg sales office also collected four boxes, grocery gift cards and 10 bags of food which were delivered to the Salvation Army located at 115 Kristiansand Drive in Toano.
Communities In Schools of Hampton Road
For nearly 40 years, Communities In Schools has been helping students achieve in school, graduate and go on to bright futures. Our mission is to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.The story of Communities In Schools began in the 1970s, when Founder Bill Milliken, then a youth advocate in New York City, came up with the idea of bringing community resources inside public schools – where they are accessible, coordinated and accountable. “It’s relationships, not programs, that change children,” Bill once said. “A great program simply creates the environment for healthy relationships to form between adults and children. Young people thrive when adults care about them on a one-to-one level, and when they also have a sense of belonging to a caring community.” And that’s what Communities In Schools does.
Today, we are the nation’s largest and most effective organization dedicated to keeping kids in school and helping them succeed in life. Our unique model positions site coordinators inside schools to assess students’ needs and provide resources to help them succeed in the classroom and in life. We partner with local businesses, social service agencies, health care providers and volunteers. Whether it’s food, school supplies, health care, counseling, academic assistance or a positive role model, Communities In Schools is there to help.
