Help kids in school with coupons, John Legend and Fill the Canoe
Communities In Schools has teamed up with Procter & Gamble to make it easy for you to “give while you save” on shopping.
On July 31, just pick up a Sunday newspaper that carries the P&G brandSAVER coupon booklet and start shopping. For each coupon redeemed, a 2-cent donation will be made to Communities In Schools to help kids in school.
Musician John Legend has added his voice in support of the partnership. Besides redeeming coupons, people can also “give” to Communities In Schools by watching a video featuring the Grammy Award winner with actual Communities In Schools students. For each view (limit of one view per person per day), P&G will make an additional 25-cent donation, up to $10,000.
Fill the Canoe
Communities In Schools of Federal Way collects needed school supplies for area children. Last year, 250 students received backpacks filled with supplies donated through Red Canoe Credit Union’s Fill the Canoe school supply drive. More than 52 percent of Federal Way School District children are living at or below the federal poverty level.
CIS is partnering with Red Canoe Credit Union to support the third annual Fill the Canoe school supply drive. The public is invited to come “Fill the Canoe” through Aug. 12 at Red Canoe Credit Union, 33616 Pacific Highway S. in Federal Way or at any alternate donation site.
