Protecting the Rise

We're giving back


We regularly host get-togethers with food, music, and essential goods to give back to the community.


Have clothing, supplies, or toiletries you don't need? Donate them to Protect the Rise to ensure they won't be forgotten.


We bring people together to help overcome the struggle.
