About RRECPTA Community Service
Each month our committee plans a different service project. Sometimes we collect specific items that are needed by a local charity, other times we plan events that involve our children in helping in the community is some way. Our committee aims to make the world a happier place in any small way that we can.
If you have a charity you wish to support or have suggestions on how RRECPTA can be of service, please contact us at email@example.com with your ideas. We would love to hear your suggestions!
