Communities In Schools of Northeastern Nevada

Currently the Lamoille Women’s club is focusing on the underwear drive that the community is participating in for CIS. Ladies can purchase underwear for male of female individuals ages 5 to 18.  Community in Schools then gives it to the individuals in the greatest need for clean and new underwear. These items can be socks, panties, shorts, boxer or briefs and other underwear items used by the school children. The Committee will     deliver all items to Community in Schools around the 10th of March.  A big thank you to the Club for their continued support.

Communities In Schools of Northeastern Nevada received a donation of $1,000 for the 2018-19 school year, and will receive a donation of the same amount for the 2019-20 school year, from The Lamoille Women’s Club for basic needs items like school supplies and   support services for local students.

The Lamoille Women’s Club has been a generous partner and supporter of CIS of Northeastern Nevada’s mission of surrounding students with a network of support and empowering them to achieve in school. In the past year they have donated school supplies, books, clothing and almost 50 pies for Thanksgiving meals for families in need.

The organization would like to give a special thank you to Lamoille Women’s Club members Pam Osmonson, Myrna Hecht, Ida McBride and President Joyce Kay for their   outreach and coordination support.
