Items we need now

Put Together Warm Welcome Bags

Often the families who stay with us at RMHWM don’t have time to plan or even pack for their stay. Therefore, we rely on our community to help supply items for these families to help lessen their burden. Supplies for our kitchen, pantry, laundry room and guest rooms are crucial so that we can keep providing for families who may otherwise go without the basic necessities. We invite schools, churches, individuals, families, organizations and employers to set up a collection drive to help us make our House a comfortable home for guests. To keep it simple, we’re created a few “kits” that are specifically designed to meet the needs for families.
