With every vehicle purchased, you choose one of five local pre-selected charities and Rath Auto Resources makes a donation on your behalf. We love our community and being involved as much as possible. Today we delivered our donation checks to Sebastian County Humane Society , River Valley Regional Food Bank , Children's Emergency Shelter , Community Rescue Mission and Fellowship Christian Athletes.
Did you know the Children's Emergency Shelter has 24 beds and is full nearly every day? They house and take care of children from ages 6-17 years old that have been removed from their home. This includes supplying meals, taking them to school and picking them up, help getting them dressed and nurturing them. The largest portion of their funding is spent toward certified educators tutoring children after school hours at their facility. When children are disrupted from their normal family, their school participation is negatively affected as well as their emotions and outlook on school. The Emergency Shelter does everything in their efforts to make sure children stay up to date with education as well as their self confidence.
The Sebastian County Humane Society is having an amazing adoption event in the month of August. All adoptions will be half price. Due to Easter, there are some pet rabbits currently available for adoption as well. Of course, the cute puppies and kitties too. :) In case you didn't know, the animal shelter is a no-kill shelter. While that is wonderful news, there is a large need for food, litter, beds, etc!
The Food Bank is preparing for their big donation event in September. They feed many families and are very crucial element to our community.
As of right now, The Community Rescue Mission is in need of bottled water and sports drinks to make sure that the homeless in our area stay hydrated in these hot summer days.
FCA will have some upcoming events this fall as well. As you know, we just wrapped our sponsorship with the FCA Golf Tournament, which is their largest event of the year!
