RNA SUPPORTS EVERGREEN RECOVERY CENTER
Help us make some Mom and kids Christmas special
Every December, we support a local non-profit and this year our selection is Evergreen Recovery Center- right here in our neighborhood. Evergreen Recovery Centers provides chemical dependency treatment and recovery for all individuals affected by alcohol and other drugs. The location in Riverside serves Moms and their children. There are two ways you can help-:
You can sponsor a family and buy gits for the family. Click Here and then place your name next to the family you want to sponsor
Donate an item from a master list.
Click HERE to see the families and the list. Place your name next to a family to sponsor or just buy items off the list.
We will be doing porch pick ups or you can do a porch drop off. We will be collecting items until 12/19. Contact Katrina at
