Arroyo Partners with CIS for Backpack Giveaway

Arroyo Consulting partnered with Communities in Schools of Tennessee to deliver backpacks and school supplies to two Metro Nashville schools to kick off the 2018-2019 school year.

Arroyo CEO Deon Gaines and CIS of Tennessee representatives visited Shwab Elementary and KIPP Nashville College Prep middle school on August 13. During the visits, the executives spent time with students and donated over 100 backpacks and supply kits to give the students a boost to start the school year.

“I feel it is our personal duty and our obligation as good corporate citizens to support the youth of our community,” Gaines said. “The students in our town are full of potential, energy and hope. We are excited to contribute to their success in any way we can.”

Gaines is also vice chairman of the board of Communities in Schools of Tennessee, a non-profit organization dedicated to keeping young students in school and helping them to succeed in life. CIS of Tennessee serves over 10,000 students in 26 schools across the state in Memphis and Nashville.

Arroyo, a Nashville-based information technology consulting firm, has a long-standing commitment to serving the community. CIS of Tennessee is one of many causes the company supports to promote the greater good in society.
