A Few Big Projects Completed!!

Posted By Jeff Dover, CRFP, RFMA, Tuesday, October 22, 2019

Hello RFMA Members,

The Volunteer Day may be over but work is continuing at the Stout Street Foundation (SSF). Two (2) large projects have been completed and they look great. First, there was a serious parking lot drainage issue to be corrected and Mad Jack's Asphalt & Concrete, LLC stepped up and donated their services to tear up several hundred feet of asphalt and replace with concrete which will extend the life of the lot. Additionally they installed a new basketball hoop including the equipment and concrete foundation and even striped in the free throw and 3-point lines. The residents are having a "ball" with this new addition. Take a look at the attached photos.

Second, the SSF main conference room which was partially remodeled during the Volunteer Day is now finished, with all new carpeting. Take a look at the photos as the room looks great and the staff at Stout Street couldn't be more appreciative. Thanks to Red Lobster for supplying the carpet along with Progressive Flooring and Shaw Flooring for the installation. This room serves many purposes for the foundation and they now have a room that represents them well. Lastly, Olive Garden has donated a few rooms worth of carpet that will installed by the SSF staff and residents shortly.

I am so proud of our members for their passion and involvement in this year's RFMA Gives project.Thank you to all!

Stay tuned, there's still more to come.

Dover and out.

2020 RFMA Gives Site Annoucement

Posted By Jeff Dover, CRFP, RFMA, Wednesday, May 15, 2019
Updated: Tuesday, May 14, 2019

Hello RFMA Members,

RFMA is humbled and pleased to announce that our RFMA Gives 2020 project recipient is Stout Street Foundation located in Commerce City, CO. After visiting several wonderful organizations in the Denver area, Stout Street was chosen because of its great fit and the large impact our members will be able to make at the organization. Stout Street's facilities include two buildings, one for administration and one for housing their residents (previously a hotel), that RFMA will be able to work on. 

Stout Street's mission is “to provide a supportive, therapeutic community for addicts and alcoholics to help them help themselves so they may return to society as recovering, productive, and responsible citizens". Stout Street provides a 2-3 year residential treatment program which includes professional services and vocational training to approximately 200 adult men and women each year. Plus they accept individuals without requiring any fees. Stout Street only asks that participants in the program are motivated to face their addiction and willing to work to put the pieces of their life back together. Learn more about our RFMA Gives 2020 project recipient by checking out their website at www.stoutstreet.org/.

I would also like to give another warm welcome to our 2020 co-project managers,  Josh Rains, CRFP, Peggy Fromholz and Jennifer Thompson. The project managers and I will be completing a "deep-dive" at Stout Street's facilities next week to determine our "project wish list." The list will include equipment, projects, services and other items that could be used to further Stout Street's services and growth in the community. As soon as the "project wish list" is complete we will post the list onto the blog and also email it to all our RFMA members. 

We are very excited about partnering with Stout Street in 2020 and we look forward to another wonderful RFMA Gives project! We are so thankful to our membership who continues to step-up and support these highly deserving organizations each year. Stay tuned to our RFMA Gives blog for more details and volunteer updates. 

Save the Date! Our RFMA Gives 2020 Volunteer Day is scheduled for Saturday, September, 21st. Registration will be available through RFMA's Event Calendar in June. 

Dover and out.

RFMA Gives Denver Update

Posted By Jeff Dover, CRFP, RFMA, Friday, May 3, 2019

Hello RFMA Members,

Quick update on the RFMA Gives Denver project. This year we have three (3) Co-Project Managers assisting. They are:

- Josh Rains, CRFP, Romano's Macaroni Grill

- Peggy Fromholz, Red Robin Gourmet Burgers

- Jennifer Thompson, Punch Bowl Social

We recently visited six (6) organizations in the Denver metro area and each were wonderfully supporting the less fortunate providing food, shelter, and professional services to help them combat their addictions. We are currently putting a letter together detailing our site visits and will be meeting with the RFMA Gives Steering committee in a few weeks to discuss further and hopefully get a location approved. After we get an approval, we will schedule another trip to complete a "deep-dive" into what their needs are and how our membership can help. If things go as planned, this wish-list of projects and equipment will be presented to all RFMA members by the end of May.

Stay tuned, more exciting information will be communicated through our social link as it becomes available. Make sure to subscribe to this blog to get timely updates.

Thanks!!

Dover and out.
