I was looking for a way to help families in need, and particularly those with children. I also wanted to do it locally (Columbus, OH area). I found Communities In Schools through the local newspaper.

I have been a donor for three years now, and it has been rewarding. I don't meet the
families that are helped, and they don't know who I am, but I do usually receive a 'thank you' letter in which I can tell if I made a difference to the family or not -- and that can make the experience entirely worth while!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

feedback from the families that are helped.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

continue to look for ways to expose the charity to the public -- the 5k run, notes in the paper during the holidays, at churches, etc.
