Dine Out for Kids
Communities In Schools of Douglas County’s annual fundraising event “Dine Out For Kids” will be held on Thursday, August 21st, 2014. Communities In Schools of Douglas County is a nationally accredited nonprofit organization which works directly with the Douglas County School System providing programs such as After School and Mentoring. We aim to increase educational success by providing students with the necessary resources needed to successfully perform throughout the school day. By eating out at any of the participating restaurants listed below, Communities In Schools of Douglas County will receive a portion of the proceeds from the restaurants gross sales that will directly benefit students in the Douglas County School System. So please “dine out” in support of Communities In Schools and the Douglas County School System in our efforts to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.
