The congregation of Riga Church supports refugee families settling in the Greater Rochester area by donating rice to ministries, such as Mary's Place, who directly serve our local refugee population. The rice donations are funded through Pennies for Rice, an on-going fundraising project designed to raise the monies needed to supply the rice being donated. Mary's Place is one of the organizations supported through this project. Every Penny Counts!!
