Grateful CPS Thanks Community for Support

At Cincinnati Public Schools, we know that success for our students takes commitment from the community. This has been especially true during the COVID-19 school closure.

Our neighbors — from near and far, in the true sense of the word — have come forward with donations of food, hygiene supplies, learning tools and enrichment activities. And the community was there for CPS to do the hands-on work of sorting and distributing donated items.

Thank you for the volunteer hours, the donations and your continued support for our schoolchildren and their families.

Watch how it all unfolded in the video at the top of the page.
