When you volunteer at Rise, you change lives!

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

Help Out at The Rise Food Pantry

Volunteers are critical to keep the Rise Pantry open and running all year long. We welcome individuals, families, organizations and companies to help sort and pack food for distribution.

Help Out at The Rise Thrift Store

Never a dull moment – from creating displays, putting puzzles together (literally and figuratively), to helping to carry in donations… Stop in for a few hours or spend the day- lots of volunteer opportunities to fit your skills and schedule.

Organize a Drive

From coats to summer camp supplies, fresh produce to diapers — Rise is always in need of help to organize food or product drives throughout the year. Have an idea for a drive? Contact us today.

Rise is always looking for new fundraising ideas – no idea is too big or too small. We would be thrilled to work with you! Check out our list of creative ideas to get started on your own.

We can’t do it alone. We depend on our volunteers everyday! Thanks for continuing to show up for our community. We promise that we’ll keep showing up too! Want to help, but not sure where you fit in? We need you and your special talents (even if they are yet undiscovered). If you’re interested in volunteering, call us at 609-443-4464. We’ll help you find the perfect way to get started!
