Donations needed for dropout prevention campaign

Communities In Schools of North Texas (CISNT) is holding their fifth annual 1Child Giving Campaign through January 31.

During the 2011-2012 school year, CISNT is projecting to provide dropout prevention services to over 3,000 at-risk students in four school districts across Denton and Wise counties.

According to CISNT, this year the 1Child Giving Campaign is more crucial than ever. CISNT experienced a 30% funding cut from the state this past session, forcing them to close two vital case management programs last summer.

This year, every tax deductible donation received during the 1Child Giving Campaign will be matched dollar for dollar, up to $30,000, by the Lantana Education/Charitable Foundation.

Information about donating to the 1Child Giving Campaign can be found at, or by calling Dana Smith or Lori Fickling at 972-436-6377.

Co-chairs for the campaign are Denton County Commissioner Andy Eads, Lewisville ISD School Board Trustee Carol Kyer, and Denton ISD School Board Trustee Charles Stafford.
