Raising Arrows is a local non-profit organization based out of Jasper, AL. We currently serve Walker, Winston, and washington counties. The mission is to provide quality care, social community, life empowerment, and healthy eating. Raising Arrows empowers kids to aim high and wants to make sure that every child in Alabama have access to a hot meal year round.
What We Do
There are different components to Raising Arrows. The vision is growing daily as the insecurity rate of child hunger rises. We have established safe and interactive programs for youth and hope to continue to do more. RAising arrows has been in operation for eight years. RAising arrows has several after school programs, multiple feeding sites, spring and summer camps, and five community events a year.
About our Founder
Jennifer Lee is a native to Walker County. Growing up in Carbon Hill, she understands the needs of this community better than most. Her purpose for starting Raising Arrows was to make sure that there would be no excuse for hunger in this county. Now her mission is reaching more than just Walker County but also surrounded counties and throughout the state of Alabama.
Enrichment Camp Mom
During the roughest ankle surgery I've ever had, Raising Arrows has taken my kids in!! I never have to worry about them and I always hear what a blast they had! When I honestly didn't know what I was going to do, RA saved my "mom nerves" and helped my kids not have to suffer through a boring recovery time with mom!! I always know this bunch has my back!! I can't ever repay you or thank you enough for all the love!!!!
Maddox Intermediate School
The program has helped our kids tremendously. The kids leave us fed each day. Many students even come back for seconds, which is always available. Honestly, this has become a selling point for many students on whether they come or not. We are very thankful.
