Who we help
Rae of Hope helps those in our community that need additional resources for health oriented issues. We donate directly or through established local providers. We have proudly given to Lourdes Hospice, Mercy House of the Southern Tier, Volunteers of America, Broome County Council of Churches and local soup kitchens and pantries.
Please visit the Jamaica Fundraiser Page to see our lucky winner and learn how he made an incredible dontation of his own!
Our Jamaican fundraiser was a success! Thank you to EVERYONE involved.
Your generosity and support helped us help so many.
Proceeds directly benefit the following initiatives:
Help Mercy House of the Southern Tier implement a call/bell system for their residents.
Help Lourdes Hospice equip their family room with comfortable furnishings to allow family members to stay with loved ones during those final hours.
Help The Broome County Council of Churches Ramp It Up building wheelchair ramps for homebound residents of Broome County.
The checks have already been dispersed! We are happy to say we were able to fund the entire amount to purchase the bell system for Mercy House! Also, a 94 year old vet will get the ramp he so desperately needs!!
In January 2018, we provided gas cards and gift certificates toward wigs for local cancer patients.
We also support alternative cancer treatment protocols, such as mistletoe therapy. Believe Big is an organization that we have worked closely with. We offer financial support to cancer patients through Believe Big. By helping offset the cost of treatment, travel and housing we can lessen the financial strain for patients; allowing them to concentrate on what's important - Getting Better.
