RISE Selected to Benefit


Reduce single-use plastic in the environment and give back to those in need in the local community, all while running routine weekly errands at the Stop & Shop on 253-01 Rockaway Boulevard, Woodmere, New York. RISE (Rockaway Initiative for Sustainability & Equity) has been selected by Stop & Shop store leadership as the benefiting nonprofit in the Stop & Shop Community Bag for the month of February.

“It’s more important than ever to help reduce single-use plastic in the environment,” Jeanne DuPont, executive director of RISE, said “Nonprofits at the local level, like us, are in need of community support. This program offers the perfect solution to multiple issues of the world today. We hope you’ll support us in February by purchasing one or two Community Bags at the Stop and Shop in Woodmere.”

Every $2.50 reusable Community Bag sends a $1.00 donation to RISE. RISE is a nonprofit based in Rockaway. Founded in 2005, RISE works to inspire all generations of Rockaway residents to care for their environment and community. We provide civic engagement and youth development programs that advance social equity and the physical well- being of our vibrant, coastal community.
