Revive is about to enter it’s 5th Dysart school!
For the past year or more, Revive has been working hard to serve the students of Dysart Unified School district. Countless phone calls and meetings have taken place with office managers and principals to culminate in resource rooms set up in five Title 1 schools throughout the district. These resource rooms contain clothing, school supplies, backpacks, jackets, shoes, hygiene products and even food. Every material thing a student needs to succeed in school.
What is a Title 1 school? A Title 1 school has a high population of at-risk and low-income students. It’s a federally funded program designed to provide additional assistance (such as tutoring, counseling and enrichment) to help students bridge the gap in order to experience a full and successful education. By providing these items and encouragement these students can eliminate some of the stresses of daily life, allowing them to learn better and be better students.
As of the start of the 2016-2017 school year, Revive will have resource rooms set up in five of the 10 Title 1 schools. The goal is to have full participation in all 10 schools as soon as possible.
Donations have come from hundreds of people and businesses. Walmart donates monthly to the project and attendees at Reveal Vineyard Church fill a bin just about every week to help supply the rooms. Numerous other donations have come in from gift cards to food items. Donation items can be dropped off at Reveal church Sunday mornings or a pick up can be scheduled by clicking here.
