“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?'”

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.



We work tirelessly to address the most pressing needs of our community providing essential items to those who needed it most. In 2022, we launched Melissa's Closet, a traveling pop-up store, visiting 3 community sites where we distributed coats, clothing, toiletries, and safety supplies valued over $40,000.

Because of committed donors, R2RB's 2022 community impact included:

  • Provided over 150 new winter coats to children.

  • Launched Melissa’s Closet! Hosted 3 popups and distributed over 2,000 pieces of clothing, coats, shoes and toiletries at each popup.

  • Provided Thanksgiving meals for 150 families.

  • Provided more than 1000 PPE items to schools to help keep students and families safe.


None of this would have been possible without the support of our donors, volunteers, and partners. Your contributions of time, talent, and resources have made a real difference in the lives of the people we serve. Whether you made a financial donation, volunteered at one of our events, or spread the word about our organization, your support has been invaluable.


As we look ahead to the new year, we are excited about the opportunities that lie ahead. We remain committed to our mission of making a positive impact on our community, and we know that we can count on your continued support to help us achieve our goals.


Please help us continue this mission by making a donation.
