Renton Emergency Assistance Program (REAP)
Autumn is waning towards winter, wind and rainstorms are increasing and it won’t be long until frost gives way to ice. Many simply step into their warm homes and turn on lights to chase away the gloom outside and heat the stove to prepare a warm meal. However, so many do not share access to these basic necessities: they have lost jobs or their paycheck hasn’t kept up with rising utility rates. These unfortunate children wake to cold and darkness when Utility Companies cannot continue services to those who are unable to pay. Families that find themselves in fear of living without what many take for granted is growing daily as the economy continues to falter. Renton Emergency Assistance Program offers a safety net for those who have fallen into desperate situations. Please consider giving the gifts of warmth in the cold and light in the darkness to your neighbors in need.
