Donate To RISE

Rise accepts some donations of clothing and household goods, as practical items are very useful when our clients are leaving our shelter and establishing new households. Donations are accepted Tuesdays and Thursdays between business hours of 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. at the Rise administration office located at 1201 E. Main Street in Endicott, NY.
