Backpacks to School

Our annual backpack drive started because of one student’s desire to help his classmate. The students were involved in a homework program, and they could earn points to get prizes. There was one student who was saving all his points, and when asked why, he said that he was saving it for a friend who did not have one. Since then we have given out around 500 backpacks a year to people in the community. We have partnered with many businesses and churches around the area who collect backpacks for the annual drive.

Craig Heisey Memorial 5K

The Craig Heisey Memorial 5k and the Victoria Heisey fun run is an event that REYS has been a part of for almost a decade. Craig and Victoria were both strong influences in the community and we are honored to participate in this event in remembrance of them.The race includes around 175 runners from the community and neighboring areas. The event benefits us here at REYS by giving the proceeds to us so that we can run After-School, Evening, Summer, and Music Programs. To signup online go to
