In the words of one of CIS’ Project Manager’s from Benjamin O. Davis High School in Aldine Independent School District:


“The most rewarding part of my job is when a child comes back to me after I have assisted them or their family and says ‘thank you’. ‘Thank you for the talk we had and for listening to me, thank you for helping us keep our lights on, thank you for the food you gave us, thank you for the free eye glasses, thank you for the school supplies, thank you…'”
