Rogers RISing

The Rogers Community Action Center

Rogers RISing supports families in our Rogers community that need assistance due to
job loss, family emergencies, illnesses or other challenging circumstances. These needs
can be short-term or long-term. 

Please consider helping RIS families who are struggling during the COVID-19 pandemic by​

making an online donation here toward purchasing grocery gift cards.

We are collecting donations for grocery gift cards to help our RIS families. SPS is providing brown-bag breakfasts and lunches, but these gift cards will help families purchase groceries for hot, home-cooked meals. All money collected will go directly toward purchasing gift cards and the PTO will match donations.


If you need assistance, please check the Stamford Public Schools Web site for the latest pick-up locations and schedules. If you need a gift card, please contact Alicia Hernandez at


Thank you for your consideration.


Ayuda al PTO y apoya las familias RIS en crisis. Estamos recolectando donaciones para tarjetas de regalo a supermercados para ayudar a nuestras familias RIS. SPS esta proporcionando desayunos y almuerzos en bolsa, pero estas tarjetas de regalo ayudarán a familias comprar mercado para cocinar en casa. Todo el dinero recolectado irá directamente hacia la compra de las tarjetas de regalo y el PTO también hará donaciones iguales. 


Si necesita ayuda, visite el sitio web de las Escuelas Públicas de Stamford para conocer los últimos lugares y horarios de recogida. Si necesita una tarjeta de regalo, comuníquese con Alicia Hernández a
