January Community Impact by the Numbers

Every day, our mission is to help our neighbors in whatever way we can.  In January, we had 1,648 visits to the food pantry by 524 local families. We distributed 16,480 bags of food to local families, and handed out 117 bags of pet food.  365 bags of personal care supplies were given to those in need.  261 of our Rise volunteers donated 1,738 hours of their time.  Our efforts are made possible by donations that we receive and by our amazing volunteers.  We want you to know that you are making a huge difference in the lives of people around you who may be struggling, and lifting up your entire community.  If you want to help us make these numbers grow, you can donate to Rise at Want to make even more of an impact? Become a Rise Good Neighbor and pledge to make a recurring monthly contribution that helps us better manage our budget and know that we are ready to take action when needs arise outside of our normal fundraising schedule, which has become our reality in recent years.
