Communities In Schools of Wilkes County – Alexander County Branch (CIS) is excited to celebrate our growing area partnerships! The Bojangles of Taylorsville and Bethlehem generously donated a portion of their proceeds to our organization during two recent Share Nights.
During a Share Night, ten percent of the profits made between the hours of 5:00 pm and 8:00 pm are filtered back to the receiving organization — in this case, CIS!
Pictured here are managers Jeremy Pope, Nathan Annas, and Jason Gregg from the Bethlehem store, following the Share Night of March 19th. Our most recent night was last Tuesday, April 23rd.
Please check this blog and our Facebook page often for news of more opportunities in which to contribute to the nation’s leading dropout prevention program! And from all of us at CIS to the staff of Bojangles and everyone who came out to show support, thank you!
