We’re working around the clock to support students and families during Covid-19

During the Covid-19 pandemic, CISNC staff have been doing whatever it takes to support students now that school buildings are closed. Each week, we provide critical social/emotional, food and academic support to students across the state. We’re so grateful for the continued support of our partners who provide donations and volunteer hours to help us achieve our goals and serve more students.

We were also so proud to celebrate our graduating seniors with yard signs, drive-through graduation celebrations, and more!

Here are some examples of the work our staff have been doing during Covid-19:

Virginia Haynes, JNCG College & Career Coach, delivers a homework packet to Maci, a student in Henderson County. 

School translator May Godinez reaches out to grab a CISNC food delivery for third grader Cesia.

Heidy, a student in Northwest NC, shared a letter with CISNC staff saying how important it is to receive food services while school buildings are closed. We’re so glad we get to make a positive difference for students and their families all across NC!

Eric is a JNCG student who overcame struggles at home to graduate this year. He’ll be enrolling in the Army in the fall. Here, he poses with the celebratory graduation sign that his CISNC College & Career Coach delivered to him.

Meredith Allen, CISNC Student Support Specialist at Royal Oaks Elementary, created coloring pages for her students to decorate and deliver to essential workers in Cabarrus County. Our staff made sure students could stay connected to each other and to their greater communities.
