For the second consecutive year, Communities In Schools of Puyallup (CISP) has been honored as one of five nominees for an annual “Rising Star” award presented by the Puyallup-Sumner Chamber of Commerce.

The chamber presented CISP Executive Director Jan Mauk with a certificate of recognition in December and announced the organization as one of this year’s five nominees for "Nonprofit of the Year."

 

The chamber announced the winner of this year’s award, Helping Hand House, at its annual Rising Star Awards Breakfast on January 14.

 

The other three nominees for the Nonprofit of the Year award were Exodus Housing, Communities for Families in the Sumner School District, and Good Samaritan Hospital MultiCare Health System.

CISP partners with the Puyallup School District to help students succeed by coordinating services such as one-on-one tutoring. It also coordinates annual events such as March Gladness community service projects and back-to-school supply drives.
