RFMA Gives 2013!
We are happy to announce Midway Safe Harbor as our RFMA Gives 2013 project site!

We have selected the recipient
for our 2013 RFMA Gives project after searching for viable candidates in the Orlando area - the site of our 2013 annual conference. After an extensive search we are thrilled to announce the selection of MIDWAY SAFE HARBOR in the community of Sanford, Florida. This organization, in partnership with the Seminole County Public School District and others, provides after-school programming, a foster grandparent program, health and nutrition education and a "kids’ café” to more than 150 childrenper day to children, 5 days a week. In addition, theyalsoserve meals daily throughout the summer, open as a safe place for kids, 11 hours per day. To be eligible for services,children must attend a Title 1 school (families earn $10-$20M/year). All of the meals are currently prepared in a very small, multi-use kitchen with an all-volunteer staff.

When we visited the wonderful people at Midway Safe Harbor, we knew instantly that RFMA Gives could have a large and lasting impact on the children they served. We are currently finalizing the plans for this project and determining the full scope of work. The complete list of needs will be posted here on the RFMA website and communicated to our members by the end of the summer.

Here are a list of some of our needs for the project:
-6 X 10 Walk-In Freezer
-9’- 5” Hood, although 10’ would work + Make Up air Fan and Exhaust Fan
-36” Electric range with oven
-Hot holding cabinets(2)-floor models, under cabinet style
-1-8’and 2-7’-6” prep tables on casters with under and over shelves
-400# Ice Cuber and Bin
-Surface mounted-exterior rated-Grease trap

If you are interested in being a part of this project by donating time, equipment, materials or funds, please contact Heather Webb at or call 972-805-0905.
