Richmond Firefighters Society comes to the rescue

On August 11th, Richmond Society for Community Living welcomed Cory Parker, President of the Richmond Firefighter’s Society to our Youth Connections program. The Richmond Firefighters’ Society has made a significant and timely donation to RSCL to allow us to purchase new, specialized three wheel bikes for the YC program, following the theft of our bikes in June. The theft hit us very hard as it happened just weeks before YC began offering full day programming for the summer and left the program scrambling for funds to cover the cost of replacement. The Richmond Firefighters’ Society responded promptly, allowing us to purchase specialized bikes which provide improved stability for participants who have mobility challenges and allows them to fully participate in our programming.
