RFMA Gives 2013 Project Site Announced!

Monday, August 6, 2012  

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
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 children per day to children, 5 days a week. In addition, they also serve 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
