River Ridge partners with the following local outreach organizations:
Bag Hunger is a program through West Teays Elementary to ensure students on free and reduced lunch have meals to take home on the weekends. Every year we collect food items, assemble the meals, and deliver them to the school for the students receiving them.
Huntington City Mission
Huntington City Mission is a homeless shelter in downtown Huntington that provides the basic needs of food, shelter, clothing, education, and case management programs to men, women, and families. Several times a year we host serving days to work on various projects around the shelter. In addition, we are a collection site for non-perishable items for their food pantry.
Heart + Hand Ministries
Heart + Hand Ministry provides people living in Putnam County with emergency services such as food, clothing, baby needs, and rent and utility assistance.
Christian Community Cupboard
Christian Community Cupboard is located at Forrest Burdette Memorial United Methodist Church in Hurricane. They are a food pantry that serves families of Putnam County. Once a year our volunteers serve at the cupboard to help organize and hand out food to residents.
