The holiday season is a time for generous giving, and the team at Rob Rice Homes is pleased to do its part to give back to the Thurston County community. We have partnered with the Olympia Salvation Army for the seventh year to participate in their “Ring the Bell” fundraising campaign to help raise money for those in need. We are proud to be the leading fundraiser for this important cause, and our goal is to continue to grow our fundraising efforts each year!

The Rob Rice team will be at Cabela’s in Lacey once again on December 2, from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., to ring the iconic Salvation Army red kettle bell, and we hope you will join us in supporting this worthy cause!

What Giving Back Means To Rob Rice Homes

We believe that no one should have to go without during the holidays and are always inspired by the genuine generosity of our clients, friends and family members who donate to this valuable endeavor. Last year, we were extremely proud to have raised the largest amount since we started — more than $12,000 — all through our consolidated fundraising efforts to support The Salvation Army’s Recovery Program.

Every dollar you generously contribute on December 2 will go toward providing assistance to those who need it most this holiday season. We are delighted to be a channel to make a difference in the lives of our neighbors during this special time of year.

The Salvation Army’s Sheltered In-house Program

As builders of homes and communities, we understand the need for individuals to have stability and the provision of basic needs such as employment, dignified housing and better health. This year, Rob Rice Homes is aligning with the Olympia Salvation Army to focus our fundraising efforts on their Sheltered In-house Program, which works with homeless individuals to establish employment, permanent housing and better health. A required 90-120 day in-house program stay enables the organization to break through barriers to help those in need. The Rob Rice Homes team is confident that in partnering with the Salvation Army, 100% of our thoughtful contributions will stay in our community and will be used toward the long-term care of people who need it the most.

Ways To Donate This Year


The Rob Rice Homes annual fundraiser would not be successful without the help of thoughtful volunteers, including Doors Unlimited (pictured))
