RHS is thrilled to announce a new initiative to support local heroes throughout the year. Our primary goal is to dedicate and donate monies for mental health support, particularly to help with PTSD and TBIs, in addition to providing equipment support when possible. We will also be applying funds to youth education programs — with the goal of informing the next generation of the need to remember, honor and support our nation’s heroes and to understand the significance of 9/11 in our history.
The RHS Community Outreach Program marks the expansion of the RHS mission. From its annual Patriot Day Memorial Event, now in its fifth year, with nearly $500K in proceeds raised to date, to a year-round fundraising mission. As we raise funds throughout the year, RHS aims to provide financial assistance to meet the on-going needs of local charities that align with our mission.
This year RHS is adding several fun new events to its calendar, from the Ride for RHS fundraisers on Memorial Day and Veteran’s Day, to additional events to be announced in the near future (check back!). If you would like to organize a fun-raising event to support our mission, please reach out to us!
Donations from individuals and corporations will be gratefully received at any point in the year, according to your giving schedule. One of the great benefits of the RHS Community Outreach Program is that those corporations whose budgets were set prior to our annual Patriot’s Day fundraising mission will be able to support RHS goals when they are setting their philanthropic budgets.
