School Closure Highlights

Site Coordinators proved over 2,000 check ins with students and families. Site coordinators provided academic assistance to students virtually over 60 times. Weekend food was distributed over 1450 times. over $15,000 in basic needs were donated and distributed to families.

At Communities In Schools of Puyallup, we are always All In For Kids, both in schools and beyond.

When school buildings closed in March, we were able to adapt our services to continue supporting students in Puyallup.

With a focus on basic needs and well-being of students, Site Coordinators dedicated their time to ensuring that students had what they needed to be successful. From checking in with students, to providing basic needs, to helping families navigate resources during this time, Site Coordinators were there to continue to empower students to be successful.

Project Book Barn

Project Book Barn: Providing kids with books when schools are closed. 
Hosted by Jessica Mulvey, Benefiting Communities In Schools of Puyallup

After school buildings closed, we were contacted by Jessica Mulvey, a community member concerned about kids being home without books.

Throughout April and May, she secured donations from various organizations. At the end of May, we packaged all of these books into “mini libraries” and sent them to all of the schools that are a meal site for the Puyallup District. Families could then grab a mini library with their weekly food.

Over 5,000 books were donated and sent home with families!
