You are a blessing to our ministry
“Bear one another’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.”
The Reformed Presbyterian Woman’s Association is a 501(C) 3 nonprofit organization that depends on donor generosity to support our ministry to the young and old. As Paul called us to “Bear one another’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ,” (Galatians 6:2), we often serve those who have limited resources or have exhausted their ability to pay for the services they receive. There are many ways you can help us continue our 118 year history of caring for older adults: financial support, political advocacy on behalf of senior care providers, and volunteering in our community. If you wish to contribute in one of these ways, please see below.
With the opening of our doors in 1897, the RPWA established the RP Home as a community resource rooted in the Christian principle of honoring our elders, regardless of their ability to pay. Our Gracious Giving, Grateful Living Fund, which we use to cover benevolent care expenses, exceeds $1 million annually. Thankfully, our mission continues through gifts from people who recognize the love of Christ within our walls.
Please consider giving a gift to support of the Gracious Giving, Grateful Living Fund today. This fund supports the housing and medical care for our older adults.
We are thankful that gifts to the RPWA have benefited so many throughout our community over the years. Your continued support is an invaluable blessing to us. All amounts are welcome.
If you wish to contribute, please use our Pay Pal Link, or by contacting Lorrie Meneely. Your gifts and support can last beyond a lifetime.
The RP Home and other organizations depends on private giving to fund the services we provide to frail and low-income seniors. Ask your legislative representatives to not support any “fiscal cliff” solution that would cap income tax deductions or otherwise restrict the deduction for charitable contributions. The needs of people are never capped. Nor should we cap the charitable deductions to help them. Click the above link to take action now and protect non profit caregivers.
An array of opportunities is open to volunteers of any age. If you enjoy talking, listening, and sharing stories, you can be a conversation partner. If you love to read, you can share scripture, letters, short stories, poetry, or the newspaper with someone. If you like to take slow walks or sit out on the deck in nice weather, you can be someone’s companion. If you enjoy table games, crafts, and puzzles, then let the games begin! If you sing or play an instrument, create a spontaneous recital or sing-along.
We have volunteer opportunities to fit any schedule. Whether mornings, afternoons, evenings, weekdays, and weekends, there are opportunities for fellowship and sharing your talents.
Please contact Sandy Pagone, our Volunteer Coordinator. We can work with you to make your volunteer experience positive, enjoyable and hopefully enduring.
And remember, you are never too old to volunteer!
