Senator Menendez has partnered with Communities In Schools (CIS) since 2001 to provide under-served students with school supplies needed to sustain them throughout the entire academic year. To accomplish this mission of ensuring students are prepared for learning, CIS is hosting a virtual fundraiser to aid with the purchase of school supplies, uniforms and technology for students in need. This is a difficult time for many families, and the Senator humbly asks that you join him in supporting children as they embark on a new school year.

The Communities In Schools’ (CIS) Stuff The Bus School Supply Drive is one of city's largest school supply drives that serves thousands of under-served students and families. Many of these families are below the poverty line and cannot afford all the supplies their children need to start their school year. The funds raised through this event will be given to about 150 CIS partnering schools (elementary-high school) across 12 school districts to purchase supplies for any student in need at that campus. The Stuff The Bus School Supply Drive helps to alleviate the stress of back-to-school expenses and allows students to focus on their education with the tools they need to be successful.
