Volunteers make up over half of the workforce at RIFA and they would not be able to accomplish the vital ministry that takes place in Jackson without volunteers. There is tremendous variety in the volunteer opportunities. Ranging from organizing a food drive and baking deserts to creating artwork and instructing a class on life skills. To find out about all of the opportunities visit their Volunteer Page.
If the volunteer opportunities seem extensive then the donation list is almost endless food, clothes, financial support, pots and pans, furniture, diapers, toiletries, blankets, and towels are always welcome. If you, your church, or organization would like to receive a monthly list of needs, please contact Lisa Tillman or Shaun Powers at 427-7963.
If you shop at Kroger's you can donate to RIFA. You just get a Kroger Gift card from RIFA and every time you make purchases using your card, RIFA earns 5% of your total purchase price. Purchases at the gas pumps count too!Visit here to find out more!
Do you find yourself saying I don't have anything on that list, or the time to volunteer, and I don't shop at Kroger;s? Do you have a big collection of those plastic bags from the grocery store? Do you reuse some of them but you always end up with too many and just throw them out? Well RIFA even collects those bags! They reuse plastic sacks at RIFA to pack Snack Backpacks as well as using them in other places around RIFA. For a complete listing of donation items visit their website or contact Lisa Tillman or Shaun Powers at 427-7963.
And don't forget RIFA is always in need of prayers for the staff members, volunteers, andpeople they serve.
