The holiday season can be a stressful time. The extra financial pressure of this time can put unneeded stress on families already facing challenges.

Communities In Schools of Puyallup partners with the staff at our site schools and numerous community partners to provide food and gifts to families every holiday season. In November, we collect donations of Thanksgiving meals to send home with families that need it. In December, we collect donations of holiday meals and gifts to send home with our families.

In 2020, we supported 809 students with the support of our community. This support aims to not only provide students with basic needs, but an opportunity to celebrate the season with their families.
