Greek Week 2021 Philanthropy

Local Philanthropy: Rural Advocates for Independent Living (RAIL)

This year we are supporting RAIL, which is the Rural Advocates for Independent Living. This organization provides resources for those living with disabilities to help them live as independently as they choose. They help with information and support by providing resources and independent living skills training. They also have a vision center, personal care products, and medical equipment available to those who qualify. This organization covers 10 counties in Northeast Missouri, including Kirksville.
