The Luzerne County Down Syndrome Network came together in 2005 with the goal of organizing Luzerne County’s first annual Buddy Walk. Through events such as the National Down Syndrome Society’s Buddy Walk, LCDSN’s mission is to advance acceptance and inclusion of people with Down Syndrome while raising funds for qualified local and national non-profit education, research and support programs. The LCDSN hopes to serve as an advocate for those individuals while promoting awareness throughout our communities.

RFI employee’s and friends participated in a Community Day on July 18, 2015 to benefit Blue Chip Farms Animal Refuge in Dallas, PA. In an effort to provide a better environment for the animals at the refuge and to give back to our community, RFI donated over 600 feet of Split Rail fence to Blue Chip Animal Refuge. There were 18 RFI employees, 10 members of Wyoming Area Secondary Center Key Club and 8 other volunteers present to assist for this event. Lunch was provided by RFI from Dagwood’s Deli in Kingston, PA. In the morning, the old fence was removed and by the afternoon the new fence was installed. Thanks to everyone’s determination and teamwork – our goal was completed in one day!
These types of projects could cost organizations thousands to do on their own, but because fence construction is what we do, we can take care of them quickly and easily. Volunteers enjoyed seeing all of the animals at the refuge, inclusive of horses, dogs, rabbits, cats, and more. Our employees really enjoyed this event and we are proud to support our community. One RFI employee, even adopted a new friend. Rutkoski Fencing would like to extend our gratitude to everyone that participated!
