RISE to Host Volunteer Project at Bowie Gardens for Millenials

RISE will host its second event of the year, “Hope Grows,” at the Bowie Jardines – Spanish for gardens –  at Bowie High School. The group will roll up their sleeves to plant and prepare the garden for the spring crop.

Officials with the group say the purpose of RISE is to empower and build a community of next generation professionals who want to volunteer and discover their role in helping to tackle El Paso’s complexities and major issues.

Their Saturday event is being held “to encourage healthy lifestyles by way of nutritious eating and reduction of stress via gardening.”

The Bowie Jardines were created in 2014, with help from local leaders, school staff, students and nonprofit leaders as a way to beautify the campus and bring agricultural education to the school.

Following the service project, RISE members can hang out at Love Buzz (3011 Pershing Drive) and enjoy some drinks and tacos from Valentine’s Kitchen.

RISE is geared toward Millenials between the ages of 21 and 30 who are working professionals or students interested in immersing themselves in hands-on volunteer projects that are followed by fun-filled happy hours and hangouts.
