Not in Shelby County and want to bring ARISE2Read to you schools?
ARISE2Read’s greatest desire is for children to be able to read the Word of God and enter into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. See how you can get involved through one of our after school Bible clubs.
ARISE2Read is a 501(c)(3) that relies on donations to fund our work. Our small staff is dedicated to improving the educational outcomes of the students we serve. We accomplish this by recruiting and training volunteers throughout our community. ARISE2Read provides all of the materials needed at each school we support. In addition, ARISE2Read provides 10 brand new books for ALL 2nd graders in ARISE2Read schools.
Many Thanks to Our Amazing Volunteers!
