NC Stage is proud to partner with Children First/Communites In Schools through their holiday program “BEDTIME IN A BAG”!
Bedtime in a Bag provides Christmas gifts to children in our local highest-needs elementary schools.
1 in 4 children in Buncombe County live below the poverty line. Children First/Communities In Schools is a non-profit devoted to empowering children and their families to reach their full potential. It’s a small organization with a big name that makes a HUGE DIFFERENCE.
How can you help?
By sponsoring one of our local elementary students and supplying a Christmas Gift!
This year, we are sponsoring the kindergartners of Emma Elementary, Johnston Elementary, and those enrolled in the CF/CIS’s Learning Center.
Drop by the NC Stage to pick up your sponsored child’s tag with his or her name and clothing size (or contact us by phone at 828-239-0263 or email firstname.lastname@example.org).
What to buy?
- A nice Christmas bag (that will be used as the wrapping for your gift)
- Toothpaste and toothbrush
- Shampoo and conditioner
- Bubble-bath &/or bath toys
- Fuzzy Towel
- Socks &/or slippers
- Stuffed Animal
- Book for bedtime reading
Thank you for giving a child a good night’s rest so they can be prepared for success at school!
