Now imagine COVID, restrictions of staffing, illness, yet our City did not throw in the towel. It is time to support those that do so much for us. S

RWCA is fundraising to support our local first responders to offer aid that is not covered by their budget based on priority of need. Any donation will help make an impact. Our first goal is to raise 100,000. We realize this barely scratches the surface for need; however, we believe our community can come together to support our local heroes. 

RWCA is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit under EIN 83-3500283. Donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowable under the law.
