RCR is a community minded organization, committed to cultivating and investing in the Portland community and providing life changing athletic opportunities. To build our partnership and enrich our investment in the Portland community, each quarter RCR donates to a different, local non-proﬁt organization. Each quarterly partner receives a thousand dollars in cash, a banner displayed at RCR events, booth and in-arena announcements at an RCR bout to generate awareness and increase participation in their organization, a half page ad in our bout program, and inclusion in the RCR monthly newsletter that coincides with the month in which they are featured. RCR also promotes the charity on wwww.rosecityrollers.com as our Quarterly Community Outreach Partner.
We are proud to support The Big Brothers Big Sisters, whose mission is “to provide children experiencing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.” They have remarkable success in improving children’s lives, notably in academic confidence, family relationships, and a vital reduction in truancy and drug and alcohol use among program participants.
