IN BLOOM
August 2019

It’s been a busy summer here at our Knoxville workshop, and – thanks to the support of our volunteers, donors, and friends like you – we’ve made thousands of deliveries to people in East Tennessee! We couldn’t do it without you, and we’re so glad that you’re part of the RAF Knoxville family!

SUPPORT DELIVERING HOPE WITH A DONATION
WE DID IT!

Thanks to 124 amazing donors, we reached (and exceeded) the Van Fund Drive goal!
We are so honored and grateful that you chose to support delivering hope.
Stay tuned for more updates on the van and to see it make its first delivery!

A FOND FAREWELL AND A WARM WELCOME

This week, we bid a fond farewell to Program Manager Emma Hayes! She has been a vibrant, dedicated, and generous member of our team from her first day. We will all miss her can-do spirit, hard work, energy, and great ideas! We send our best wishes as she moves across the country and into married life!!

Cyndi Dodson will be taking on the role of Program Manager, and she has jumped into her first week in the workshop with enthusiasm. Cyndi has a long professional history in nonprofit and education, and we are excited that she is joining the RAF Knoxville team! Be sure to say “hi” to her the next time you pay us a visit!
