Our Results

By 29 July 2016, RufUs outfitted and furnished 360 houses, making them into into homes for 370 adults and 319 children (with 17 pending).  The retail value of goods distributed is $7,600,000. When you compare this to 2015 when the RufUs Charitable Trust outfitted and furnished 220 houses making these homes for 229 adults and 189 children with a retail value of the goods distributed being $4,500,000, you can see that demand is skyrocketing.

By the end of 2016, RufUs outfitted over 500 homes, with an average of 3 people per home. In December alone, our “Home for Christmas” Project saw 36 homes outfitted. We needed two trucks and some cars working 18 hours per day to bring it all together! A massive thankyou to all those who donated items and supported us during that time.

In order to maintain these vital support services RufUs currently has to raise over $70,000 each year to fund the pickup and storage of essential items prior to distribution to those so in need. Please give as you are able. Donations over $2 are tax deductible.

We would also love to hear from anyone interested in volunteering to sort and pack orders at the warehouse, or collect donated items. Every contribution helps!
