Coming up are two ways to rally around Communities In Schools of Chesterfield, which helps students from struggling homes achieve academic success. Here’s how you can help:
First, vote online through Richmond Unite. This won’t cost you anything. Communities In Schools of Chesterfield and other local non-profits are competing for Richmond Unite money. Between Aug. 15 and Sept. 15, you can vote once every day at www.richmondunite.org . The more votes CIS gets, the more money it will receive from Richmond Unite, so encourage others to also vote daily for Communities In Schools of Chesterfield.
Second, donate online during the Amazing Raise. This 36-hour regional event offers an opportunity to financially support CIS of Chesterfield. The Amazing Raise encourages people to donate $50 or more online to local nonprofit groups. Non-profits will receive the money their fans donate and will also be in the running for additional cash prizes from the Community Foundation, which oversees the Amazing Raise. To give to Communities In Schools of Chesterfield, go to www.giverichmond.org  between 6 a.m. Sept. 19 and 6 p.m. Sept. 20. After you donate to Communities In Schools of Chesterfield, please encourage others to give, too.
