RCIL’s first annual fundraiser Many Hearts, One Purpose… Dining for a Cause will directly benefit elderly individuals in Herkimer and Oneida Counties (who do not qualify for government benefits) and would not otherwise be able to afford attending RCIL’s Adult Day Service program. This valuable program provides participants with personal care, social activities, door to door transportation, nutritious snacks, breakfast and a hot lunch. Activities are provided, for up to 55 people, in a safe and beautiful setting.
