Adams Air presents Amarillo’s Longest Motorcycle Run at over 200+ miles. It will be raising money for the Rainbow Room and the Elks Sweetheart Fund. If you are interested in being a sponsor or want to donate please don’t hesitate to message one of the hosts of the event.
The Rainbow Room is resource room that helps meet the needs of children that have been abused or neglected here in our community. The Rainbow Room distributes emergency items to children and families in crisis situations, such as new clothing, shoes, diapers, formula, wipes, cribs, toddler beds, cleaning supplies, and school supplies. Children often enter the Foster Care system with nothing but the clothes they are wearing and caseworkers may be summoned in the middle of the night to rescue a child or to help a family escape an abusive situation. For children that are unable to return home, The Rainbow Room recruits for forever families to adopt. There are currently 6,508 Texas children that don’t have a family. Of those, 450 are our children from the Texas Panhandle. The portion of your donation that goes towards the Rainbow Room not only benefits the children that we serve, but makes our caseworker’s jobs a little easier when they know the community is supporting their efforts. 100 of any monetary amount given or any item donated goes directly to assist a child in need, free of any overhead or administrative expenses. We appreciate you assisting children and families in our community.
The purpose of the Sweetheart program is to raise funds for the Lodge to support the state major projects – Texas Elks grants for special needs children and Texas Elks summer camp.
