Neighbors In Ministry Rise & Shine Freedom School recently held their first annual service project for this school year with their scholars. Rise & Shine believes giving back to the community is important and the scholars recognize the value and importance of doing so.

The first day of service was held last Friday and they landscaped the front of Bethel “A” Baptist Church. This was Neighbors In Ministry Rise & Shine’s way of saying “thank you” to Pastor Frederick Gordon and to the church for allowing them to occupy space for their program for the past 16 years.

Rise & Shine believes when youth volunteer, adults tend to volunteer also, resulting in a life-long volunteer.
