🎄 12 Days of Charitable Donations with City Image Signs 🎄
We wanted to start off by saying Thank You to our valued customers for all of your continued support.
City Image Signs believes strongly in Corporate Social Responsibility and part of that is giving back to the community, especially in times of greatest need. In recognition of the challenging times over the past 21 months, CIS has decided to engage a 12 Days of Charitable Donations campaign where we highlight and donate to charitable organizations close to the hearts of many of our customers. In doing so, we encourage others to look into these and other charitable organizations to help give back to the community, where possible, this holiday season.
The following Charities have been supported throughout this initiative.
