Neighbors in Ministry exists to enrich children, empower parents and encourage community through year-round programs. Since 1996, Rise & Shine has helped Transylvania County’s economically disadvantaged and racial minority children learn about the fundamental importance of education, about their community and culture, and about themselves.
Lake Toxaway Charities approved grants for 2020 and 2021 for Rise and Shine. The grants will provide for after school programs, specifically funding an after school site coordinator and college interns to assist. The grant will also fund STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) related field trips and STEAM education. An allowance will be made for healthy snacks.
Will Boyd spoke at our 2021 Charities Gala. Will is quite the success story as a Rise and Shine student in Brevard. We hope you enjoy this video where Will tells how Rise and Shine impacted his educational and career choices.
