As a member of the St. Louis metropolitan community, RF Home Co believes it is our responsibility to support local, nonprofit community organizations by providing financial and merchandise contributions.
This policy ensures that all donations are coordinated and aligned with our corporate strategy and business goals, maximize opportunities to develop long-term relationships, and fit within our budget and resource limitations.
