We wanted to get you started off on the right foot in the new year. There are so many ways to serve in Reading and give back to the community – giving it hope and a future. Sometimes the hardest part is finding out where the best places are to get started. We’ve compiled a small list of different organizations always looking for people willing to invest time, energy, and resources into their cause and the people they serve. Here’s a couple that we recommend contacting and getting involved with:

Greater Berks Food Bank – Always looking for food donations and volunteers to help pack boxes for home deliveries.

Opportunity House – Homeless Shelter and Support Housing

Hope Rescue Mission – A Christian mission organization that provides spiritual, physical, and emotional needs of less fortunate men

Bridge of Hope – Mission – “Our vision is to end and prevent homelessness for women and children across the United States by calling churches into action.”

Big Brothers Big Sisters – Mentoring program for the greater Berks county area including Reading

Reading Berks Conference of Churches

F*R*E*E – Freedom and Restoration for Everyone Enslaved – Organization working towards ending human trafficking
