a Community Service Partnership

stories_melissa“We became aware of Rise through an employee who mentioned a local food pantry in Hightstown. We contacted Rise that we were interested in helping with the Thanksgiving Food Drive. It started here, in Customer Service, with about 40 of us, but in the last two years, it has branched out to the whole building. This year, for the Thanksgiving Food Drive, we raffled off two of our Cuisinart products and raised over $1,000.00.

Last year we started to do the ‘Adopt a Child’ holiday gift program, which everyone really enjoyed.  We couldn’t believe how many gifts were filling that Church!  Now people are asking us ‘What are we going to do this year?’

We already have our kids for this year – 25 of them, and it is really exciting! We like to help people in our community, and we feel that local connection. Meeting the people who work there, and seeing how appreciative they are, makes you feel good about helping people in need.

We hope that we are making a difference with Rise.”
