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.

United Way to Launch RISE for Millenials Who Want to Give Back to Community

In an effort to engage young El Pasoans in their community, United Way of El Paso County will be launching RISE, the city’s first community for Millenials who want to give back.

RISE empowers those who are between the ages of 21 and 30 years old to give back in the areas of early education, healthy living and child hunger through volunteering and friendship building. As an extension of United Way, RISE’s goals are adaptations of United Way’s impact areas, which are education, basic needs and income.

The major goal of RISE is to help the next generation of professionals to engage in powerful volunteering and discover their role in helping to tackle El Paso’s complexities and major issues.

Key to the RISE community’s success is connecting members to other passionate people who care about their city’s future.

The group will launch its efforts with its first event “New Year. New You. RISE,” a mixer and book drive at the end of January. The event will allow prospective members to learn what it means to be a RISE member as well as get to know the event’s beneficiary Books Are GEMS.

Kick-off Event: “New Year. New You. RISE.”
