Donor Appreciation

Feb 9, 2022

Will You Be Our Valentine?

Month of Love brings appreciation for RITI Donors

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Giving is sweet,
And so are you!

During this month of love, we want to show our deep gratitude for RITI donors. Whether giving one-time, monthly, with an employer match, or through a legacy gift – donors make it possible for RITI to provide safe shelter 24/7/365 for those experiencing homelessness in Memphis.

Together – donors, volunteers, staff, and guests create what we call the “Inn Crowd,” and as we always say: The Inn Crowd is the BEST crowd!

Everyone in the Inn Crowd has a story to share about what brought them here and inspires them to be a part of this community of holy hospitality.

Hear the story of longtime RITI supporter, Rene Platten:

Volunteer Spotlight

February’s volunteer spotlight is Carrie Thornton-Akey. A volunteer from host congregation, Heartsong UMC, Carrie comes to the RITI campus every Friday to prepare lunch for Family Inn and Recuperative Care guests.

I love interacting with the guests. And, as a Jesus follower, I believe I am doing the work Jesus called us to do. -Carrie Thornton-Akey, Heartsong UMC

We think about Carrie’s delicious deli sandwiches all week long! Thank you, Carrie, for the many ways you serve RITI.
