1972 – “To aid Rockbridge area households in a time of emergency when help is needed to meet life’s basic needs of food and safe, warm shelter.”
Food, Utilities, Heating, Fuel, and Rent when possible. Eligible households up to 250% of federal poverty level.
RARA’s food pantry serves an average of 600 families each month; from 1/1/2015 thru 9/30/2015, RARA assisted 832 families (1,975 individuals) with utilities, fuel, and rent.

I feel it is important to help others and I believe that charity begins at home and with our neighbors.
