We believe in the power of having a home and the difference that simply having a roof over one’s head can make. RED is proud to be a partner with People Assisting The Homeless (PATH) and we encourage everyone to become involved in working toward viable solutions to ease our nation’s and certainly our local communities’ homeless crisis. In the last few years PATH has housed more than 2,600 families and almost 6,600 people. In addition, they have built nearly 1,100 new homes and are just getting started!
What we love about PATH is the myriad of ways in which we all may become involved. On an individual basis, one may take clothing suitable for a job search to their amazing mall on Madison Ave or volunteer to work at the center. As a group there are opportunities to make meals or volunteer for one of their great programs like “Making It Home”. We can’t express how rewarding it was for us to collect furniture and then to furnish an apartment for a family that had been sheltered for six months. What a great holiday experience for our team as we took holiday decorations along for the single mother of three.
And of course, there is the ever welcome donation opportunity. Throughout the year, RED gives $100 per transaction to PATH to create a steady income stream for their programs and in 2016 we were able to donate $4,000 to our partners in this fine mission.
Call us to talk about it more. We love talking about PATH and have great contacts there to get you started. Find out how you may make a difference.
