This fundraiser closed 4 months ago
I'm turning 50 this month, and for my birthday I'm trying to raise $5000 for RTSF. Most of you know that I've been the ED here for 4 years now, and I really believe in the work that we do to provide safe and comfortable homes for low income seniors. You may not know that each year, we install grab bars, tub benches and smoke detectors in over 200 homes. These repairs help keep our older folks from falling in the tub, which can be disastrous for a senior.
Our Home Safety program could really use a boost this summer. We have about 40 people on the waiting list, and we need to purchase more grab bars, bath benches and CO monitors in order to meet the need.
So, for my 50th, will you help me raise $5000 to install grab bars in 25 additional homes this summer? I'll keep you posted on progress through the month.
In the meantime, listen to what Mrs. Williams had to say about her new grab bars below. (preview: "Honey - I used to tremble getting into this tub. Now I get in and out like I'm 60!")
