RECA's 2016 Christmas in October committee chose to partner with Sammy’s House, a nonprofit organization that provides services for children who are medically fragile or developmentally delayed. On Saturday, October 22, more than 100 RECA members and their friends came together at Sammy's House to renovate interior living and exterior living and play spaces. RECA's hope is that these improvements will create a safe and healthy living environment for the children to spend quality time with their family and friends. Thanks to all the monetary gifts, and donations of materials, design and labor, from our sponsors below, our volunteers have transformed the facilities at Sammy’s House into a more inviting, healing and functional space the children can enjoy.
It's not too late to make a monetary donation:
