WHat We DO

We started out with a simple idea, to feed people who found themselves on the streets having a hard time.  Since the community at large has a reputation for turning its back on these people, we turned to the community that we know- the music community.  We found that the local heavy metal community was eager to help in any way they could- donating food and clothing, and the bands were happy to provide their services for free in order to help out.  Not wanting to be another charity organization who raises money that is never accounted for, founder Carla Pruitt started putting on event charity drives collecting food.  She would spend as much of her time as possible cooking the donated food and with the help of volunteers going right out into the streets and distributing the donations personally.  With changing laws and dwindling resources coming from the community R.A.K. comes out of our own pockets to ensure that we can continue with our cause,  there are many shows and some great entertainment on the horizon, and many mouths to feed out there.  Its a simple idea: a better future for our community can start with just a few random acts of kindness.
