You Can Help

Rise Food Pantry 2022

When you volunteer at Rise you change lives!

Be the difference between hope and hardship for single parents, children, the elderly or disabled living on fixed incomes, and all the families working hard to make ends meet and coming up short every month by volunteering at our Community Food Pantry.

Volunteers are vital to the success of the Rise Food Pantry’s efforts to help people in our community who need food assistance! 

If you'd like to share a few hours of your time, or bing a whole group to help out, we'll welcome you with open arms. It will most certainly be fufilling and rewarding.
