At the end of 2016, the ERC Helping Hands committee at RPS awarded a $5,000 grant to Bags4Kids, a local non-profit with an important mission:
Bags4kids provides “comfort bags” to children who have been displaced due to neglect, abuse, abandonment. They give these bags to shelters, county offices, resource centers, foster parent agency’s, police stations and schools. Bags may also go to families with very limited resources. Through donations, Bags4kids is able to support the mental wellbeing and comfort of children during a stressful time in their lives.
It is through the generosity of the employees at RPS that support ERC Helping Hands that made this gift possible. A special thanks to Pam and Jeff Williams for taking the photos!
