This is the perfect time of year to reflect on everything and 2020 was certainly challenging. However, the support we received throughout the year was overwhelming and we are so thankful. Our network of friends, family and donors came to our aid when we had a shortage of PPE supplies, or when we needed to raise money for our residents to enjoy activities within their quarantine at home. The holidays were also abundant with fundraising for gifts and RISE is thriving more than ever as we start a new year.

Each year, our staff from every branch of our agency puts together a master Wish List in order to share what would be best for our programs, houses and residents. Some items are small and some are much higher in value. This Wish List is a way for someone to help with a specific item instead of general donation. It will be here on our website, on social media and at our fundraising events later in 2021. We ask that you review it, save it and share it with anyone you think can help along the way. Thank you in advance and Happy New Year! Click here to open the 2021 Wish List in a new window or download as a PDF.
