As an organization, we desire to impact the lives of children, teachers, families, and the community by enhancing the quality of public education through our tutoring program, as well as create a ministry of loving care for students to see they are valued and precious to God. Funds raised could help with the day to day costs of running this 501(c)3 organization, training of volunteers, materials for tutoring, backpacks for 2nd grade students, and more. The wellbeing of the entire Huntsville community depends upon a successful and high achieving school system. Arise2Read is becoming an integral part of these efforts by providing caring volunteers who not only help students build confidence and feel successful but also encourage teachers that their community is behind them. Together, we can SAVE A CHILD, SAVE A FAMILY, SAVE A CITY.
