riser's shop

We can create change together by  rising up, using our talents, inspiring and creating opportunities to give back.  GRS Risers are contributing artists that have graciously provided us with handmade items that will generate funds for local organizations.  Creating change for our community, by our community.    

10% of proceeds from this shop will go to the current GRS recipient (a Frederick Non Profit/Organization) 

If you are interested in being featured in this Risers Shop please contact us.
