Wish List

The Chicago branch workshop is where our volunteers do all the hard work to prepare the bouquets that deliver hope and encouragement to vulnerable members of our communities. To do that work, they need the right tools. Take a look at our wish list to see what items would help with our mission; and, if you would like to make a donation of any of these items, please email info@RAFChicago.org.
