2nd Avenue Community Center

Second Avenue Community Center Partnership

Each day after school 30 from Mary C. Snow Elementary come to the after-school program at the Second Avenue Community Center.  River Ridge Church provide homework buddies for these students Monday through Thursday.


As part of the after-school program, the students are fed dinner before heading home.  Volunteers from River Ridge provide dinner to the students on Mondays and Wednesdays.  Additionally, each child is sent home on Friday with a food for the week-end in what we call a backpack blessing bag.

The Second Avenue Center is a historic part of the Charleston’s West Side.  As part of revitalizing the neighborhood and the center, volunteers from River Ridge remodeling various rooms in the center in order to make them kid friendly and safe.
