Giving Back with Youth Charity Rise365

Raise It Up headed to youth community charity Rise 365 to hand out food and health supplies to the local community.

18 December 2021, our Raise It Up team and Co-Founder Aimée Buchler headed to youth community charity Rise 365 at Kingsmead Community Centre in Hackney, London to hand out food and health supplies to the local community ahead of Christmas.

Team Raise It Up at Kingsmead Community Centre

Rise365 is a community interest company who inspire, support and empower young people and the community. Their mission is to enable people to reach their goals and to support them to navigate through challenging times.

Our Co-Founder Aimée said: 

“It is so important to help others wherever we can. I was so inspired to see the bond everyone had at Rise365 when we volunteered there. The power of people coming together is what creates a strong community."

The team packed up fruit and veg, cupboard foods, snacks and drinks along with health and cleaning supplies to get the locals through the coming weeks leading up the Christmas. The locals pay a small fee to be able to collect supplies from the community centre and they are able to do this each week or when best suits them, financially. Rise365 also offer support to those suffering from mental health or who are trying to get their lives back on track after trauma, loss, crime and more.

The importance of giving back will always remain a high priority for our team; we will be dedicating a lot of time throughout the year to volunteer at charities and help where we can to those who need it.
