Communities In Schools of Puyallup (CISP) will be among several local non-profit organizations that will be accepting donations for people in need during a “Puyallup Cares” family night on Wednesday, July 30 at Pioneer Park.


Live music, games, raffles, and face painting also will be featured during the free event from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Pioneer Park Stage in downtown Puyallup. The park is adjacent to the Puyallup Public Library, 324 S. Meridian.


CISP is also accepting school supplies from August 1-22 at numerous area businesses. The organization partners with the Puyallup School District year-round to help students succeed, including coordinating a reading tutoring program, several after-school math and reading programs, and the distribution of community resources. 


The organization will be joined at the Puyallup Cares event by other non-profit groups such as Helping Hand House, St. Francis House, Freezing Nights, Puyallup Food Bank, and the Salvation Army.


In addition to school supplies, organizations are accepting donations of diapers, new socks, baby supplies, school supplies, peanut butter, tuna fish, and household cleaning supplies. Information about ways to serve the community will also be available.


The July 30 event at Pioneer Park is sponsored by The One Another Foundation, Anthem Coffee and Tea, and Korum for Kids Foundation. It is designed to promote caring, serving, and giving in the Puyallup community.
