Bless a Bulldog Opportunity

Communities in Schools is very excited to partner with you and the local community for our annual “Bless A Bulldog” this holiday season! Last year with your help we were able to bless over 80 students in the district!! Our goal is to assist any bulldogs that may need holiday gift assistance.

Ways to help? Fully sponsor a student (buying, shopping, wrapping gifts for students), donating money, donating gift wrapping supplies, donating shopping time, and/or donating wrapping time.

Who can sign up to sponsor? Yourself/family, a group of friends/coworkers, etc.

Ready to sign-up? Follow this link: https://forms.gle/Wj47tTVXtk9dFCC68

If you are interested in signing up to be a sponsor and have further questions, please contact us through this email: wylie.cis@cisbigcountry.org

Last day to sign up: November 30th

Things to note:

  • CIS suggests that sponsors respect the $100 limit per student, so that each student can be gifted equally across the board. Again, this does not mean that one sponsor has to donate $100 of gifts! What it means is that we will make sure each student is paired with as many sponsors as it takes to get them to that $100 goal mark.

  • All names of individuals/families will remain anonymous

Thank you for Blessing a Bulldog!
