Day one of the RFMA Gives Volunteer weekend was nothing short of amazing!
Over 100 RFMA members came out to support the efforts of the ECTLC in El Cajon, California. Seeing the "sea of orange" take on jobs from sanding and painting to installing new energy efficient thermostats was a fantastic site--it honestly gave me the chills to see so many people working for such a great cause. Maybe even more impressive was having the opportunity to talk to some of the residents of the ECLTC who could not thank RFMA enough for all that was being done for them. Not only were residents thankful for what was being done at ECTLC, many of them jumped right in alongside the RFMA volunteers to help. Having the opportunity to take part in this year's RFMA Gives is more than improving the look of a building, it is transforming the lives of the hundreds of people who come through the program each year. To Harold, the ECLTC staff, and all of the RFMA volunteers, keep up the good work! The effects of your kindheartedness and dedication will be felt for many, many years to come!
