Rockaway Rising's Rock The Holidays

Raised by 41 people in 11 months
It's the most wonderful time of the year in Far Rockaway.... Our 4th Annual Far Rock the Holidays community service extravaganza is here!

Throughout December, our Little Risers and their families complete various community service projects around Far Rockaway to earn money to buy holiday presents for their loved ones. They visit elderly neighbors, clean up local parks, decorate their buildings, and spread cheer to local firemen and policemen.

**For many, the money they earn through your donations will be the only money they spend on gift giving this year**

Would you sponsor a kiddo (or 2!) and allow him or her to experience the true joy of giving this holiday season?

1 hour of service = $10 in Holiday Bucks that each can spend on gifts for their loved ones.

$20 empowers Harmony to give her grandma fuzzy house slippers.

$50 allows David to surprise his big brother with new winter boots.

$10 is all it takes for Dynasty to give her big sister a friendship ring.


Armed with our hard-earned money, we'll go shopping to pick out the perfect presents. With your help, we'll throw a giant wrapping party filled with Mariah Carey sing-a-longs, hot chocolate fueled dance parties, and opportunities to celebrate the joy that comes with GIVING this holiday season.

This event is the highlight our of year at Rockaway Rising, and we are so grateful for the cycle of generosity that you spark in our community.

Executive Director, Rockaway Rising
