Thanksgiving Food Drive

Time To Talk Turkey!

Family, friends, fun and FOOD, FOOD, FOOD….the perfect ingredients for the Thanksgiving Feast. Not everyone is lucky enough to have each one of these ingredients at their table though.  That’s why Rise staff, volunteers and donors are working hard behind the scenes to bring each ingredient to the Rise Community Dinner table, as well as, to other families in need.


Share the gifts you have been given at this special time so that someone else’s family can know the joys of stuffing and being stuffed, of caring and being cared for, of thanking and being thanked.  There are so many ways you can help.


To make an online donation or wish to drop off a ‘big bird’ to the Rise Thanksgiving Food Drive please visit the Rise Food Pantry located at 225 Franklin Street, Hightstown, NJ 08520.
