Our Mission

Posted on

Now in its 24th year, Rock and Wrap it Up! (RWU) is an award-winning anti-poverty think tank. We research, discover and nurture potential donors who have renewable assets to share. Our donors include touring bands, educational institutions, the hospitality industry, professional sports teams, hospitals and TV/film shoots throughout North America. We find and vet partner agencies who need and can share these resources with the poor. We strive to empower school partners to broaden their academic horizons by advocating for utilization of the Whole Earth Calculator Lesson plans which reduces both poverty and carbon footprints.

All of our partners are protected by the Bill Emerson Good Samaritan Act (Pub. L. No 104-210, 110 Stat. 3011(1996)) as long as safe food handling is used. Over one billion meals have been recovered since 1991.

Recognized by the White House with a Point of Light Award and receiving numerous EPA distinctions, we strive to re-earn these honors every day.
