About On The Rise Box

Medford Life Box

Each season we gather together delicious foods and drinks, quality products, amazing discounts, and special offers, all from local Medford businesses. Valued over $100, we bring you a wide variety of goods you will enjoy and can share with others.

Our goal is to rewrite the narrative of what it means to be a Medford resident and live in this town. Let's have pride in our city, seeing and experiencing many of the great things we have to offer.
