“Without the help of grants from the RRCF, we would not be able to meet some of the needs of the poor in our community. We have received money for client transportation, new bedding, and helping people get into rehabilitation.”

“Our small board of dedicated volunteers had big dreams and a passion for promoting the arts in Renton. Raising the funds to make that happen however, was difficult. In 2004 we created a fund with RRCF which has almost doubled since then. Our dreams have come true big time!”
