Live Thankfully!

RHE is partnering once again with Live Thankfully in feeding families this Thanksgiving. With your help, we will give Thanksgiving dinners and groceries to families in need. These families are adopted through our school and other Fort Worth schools. Last year we were able to give 2,500 bags of groceries along with Thanksgiving dinners to more than 600 families in need! Below are ways you can help us Live Thankfully:
