The Dish



We had 150 volunteers join us this past Saturday in Phoenix to help with our annual RFMA Gives Volunteer Day event. Volunteers painted, landscaped, and assisted with sorting at our RFMA Gives 2018 project recipient, The Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center.  We can’t wait to see the additional changes and projects that will be happening at the Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center in the coming months! We are so grateful for our members and their generous support, because of them we will be able to leave a lasting impact in the Phoenix community.
