Arise2Read Backpack Drive needs you!

Arise2Read is a literacy program that allows volunteers from various churches, local businesses, and civic clubs to take an active role in the lives of children by spending time assisting them with reading.  Improving reading skills of low income students by the end of third grade increases their graduation rate to 89 percent. The organization is doing amazing work in Huntsville schools!

They are currently working to raise funds to create backpacks full of books to send home with every 2nd grade student in Huntsville Independent School District to promote reading throughout the summer.

Check out the information at their facebook page…HERE.

  1. SHSU Career Services would like to donate to this charity Arise2Lead toward the Backpack Fundraiser. Can you please provide me with a copy of your W-9 and send to scooke@shsu.edu. We are required to pay by check so I will need to submit a requisition for payment to our Disbursement Department. If you have questions, please feel free to email me at the above email address. Thank you.
