Rogers RISing

The Rogers Community Action Center

We are currently holding a winter clothing drive.


Classes will be going outside throughout the winter, and many students do not have warm outdoor gear. Due to the pandemic, this year we are requesting new items. Target and Old Navy are great sources and currently have sales on winter clothing.

To see the list of items and to sign up, please go here.

About Rogers RISing

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. 

Our food pantry is temporarily closed due to the pandemic, but you may donate online toward

gift cards for our needy families. 


Many of our programs are on hold this year, but typically we hold many events throughout the year, including:


August: School-supply drive

September: Recycled uniform drive

October: Costume drive 

November to March: Winter clothing drive

November: Thanksgiving meal “wish lists”

December: Giving tree and holiday meal “wish lists”

February: Winter break food drive

March/April: Holiday/spring break meal “wish lists”

June: School-supply drive for next school year



If you would like to donate to the food pantry or one of our other programs, please place it in the plastic tote box marked “Rogers RISing” outside the office. Students often take food home with them, so please provide bagged and boxed (versus canned) items whenever possible. If would like to donate perishable items, gifts cards or cash, please contact us.

If you would like to volunteer with Rogers RISing or have questions, please contact Andrea Banyas at or (203) 722-4791 or Alicia Hernandez at or (203) 977-4332.
