CIS-SA Signature Annual Events

Stuff The Bus School Supply Drive

The Communities In Schools of San Antonio’s annual Stuff The Bus School Supply Drive provides free school supplies to thousands of underserved students and families throughout the school year.  Back-to-school expenses can be difficult for many San Antonio families as some students cannot get all the supplies they need on their required school supply list. We invite YOU to get involved to ensure EVERY student has the tools they need for school! We have three convenient ways to get involved. See more information below to join us in supporting students within our community! This campaign begins in mid-June and ends at the beginning of August.

Three Ways to Get Involved

A Special Thank You to Our Sponsors!

Whole Child Whole Community Conference

Each year in November, non-profit leaders, youth-serving staff, educators, counselors, and community leaders gather at the Whole Child Whole Community Conference hosted by Communities In Schools of San Antonio. Over 200 participants gathered to learn from experts and community leaders about how to build relationships with students and families to unlock their potential, create safe spaces to promote healing and mindfulness, celebrate exemplary commitments to kids, and become an advocate to promote equity in schools and beyond. Join us for a day dedicated to learning, community building, and wellness!

Keeping Kids In School Luncheon

The Keeping Kids In School Luncheon is one of our largest fundraising events and your chance to see the latest ways we are equipping students to take on and tear down the barriers that stand between them and an equitable path to education. Each year in May, over 500 community members, including elected officials, corporate partners, school district partners, and friends, come together for this special event. Not only is this a time to celebrate the work we have accomplished together for our students and families, but also a time for each of us to discover how we play a role in the lives of young people. Our goal is to raise funds needed for the upcoming school year so that every student, regardless of zip code or socioeconomic status, feels empowered to succeed.
