27th Annual Big Bean Dinner
Thursday, November 16, 2023
Bream Memorial Presbyterian Church, 317 W Washington St Charleston WV 25302.
Featuring a down-home Southern menu - meat or veggie brown beans, cornbread, collard greens, roasted potatoes, mac and cheese, coleslaw, and a sampling of desserts. Music will be provided by Angela Jones. Silent Auction items include a variety of desserts prepared by volunteers, themed gift baskets, and gift certificates.
The same cook – Margaret Easton – has been making the beans each year. She is the sister of RCCR’s first Executive Director, Sandra Hamlin.
This event is RCCR's premier fundraiser and allows us to continue providing exceptional housing and services to persons experiencing homelessness, men in recovery, justice impacted, and low-income families.
This Fall, we are advancing affordable housing with the rehabilitation of a motel in Jefferson, WV and 3 multifamily properties on Charleston's West Side. These projects help to revitalize the community by creating 32 affordable rental units for individuals and families making less than 50% Area Median Income (AMI). In addition, we are building 4 single family homes in Dunbar, 1 single family home in North Charleston, and rehabbing 2 single family homes on Charleston’s West Side all for first time home buyers at 80% AMI. We continue to provide housing counseling services to first time home buyers and now provide foreclosure prevention services to homeowners facing a financial hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Through RCCR's staff and community partners we generate a huge impact in the community.
Live on the Levee is a 15-week free concert season that begins in May. A 50/50 raffle is conducted during each concert with half of the proceeds going to the winner and the other half to designated charities like RCCR, YWCA, Manna Meal, Covenant House, and Roark Sullivan.
Help provide hope to low-income families and individuals who are experiencing homelessness.
