Yesterday our team partnered with a local non-profit, A Child’s Place (ACP), for the 5th consecutive year to create a one-of-a-kind shopping experience for children at a nearby CMS school. Principal Partners, Patty Comer and Amy Pack, elaborated why they enjoy partnering with A Child’s Place year-after-year, “The Child’s Place organization allows us to support and provide for those in need within our community. We can partner with a nearby school and truly make an impact on the children and their families. It warms our hearts to have our entire company come together to support such a deserving organization.”

On-going case-management through individualized student plans aims to maintain attendance, healthy behaviors, and staying up-to-date on coursework.
Accrue’s Give Back Gift Shop
Our “Give Back Gift Shop” gave students, Kindergarten through 5th grade, a unique opportunity to experience the joys of giving by allowing them to select holiday gifts for their caregivers. With a variety of gifts provided entirely by our staff, we assisted each student with gift choices and wrapping! Even Santa made an appearance to help! The students were so happy to have this opportunity and our team had a ton of fun spending time with them all day! A big thank you to A Child’s Place for allowing our team to contribute and be a part of such a wonderful experience this holiday season.
