How RALLY works:

The goal of RALLY is to equip churches and businesses to connect with and personally invest in one specific partner school, so they can build relationships with the students, teachers, coaches, and school staff. RALLY support could look like providing pre-game meals to student athletes, volunteering for games or special events, hosting work nights at the school, and so much more. The possibilities are endless! If you see a need in your partner school, we can help you create and implement a plan to address it.
