Community Partners

Rayjon is so grateful for the community partners that dedicate their time, resources, and energy to supporting Rayjon.

degroots2017DeGroot’s Nurseries

Once again DeGroot’s Nurseries have supported Rayjon with an annual plant sale. The diplandenias are stunning! The 3 day plant sale @ DeGroot’s Nursery the first weekend of June was a resounding success. Over 700 customers bought more than 1100 Dipladenia plants to help support Rayjon projects in Haiti & the Dominican Republic. Fundraising is an ongoing, important part of what we do – & need to do.

But we can never, ever do it without such a wonderful support system. That includes all volunteers, all Rayjon supporters & of course John DeGroot, Lynn England & Diane Visser @ DeGroot’s Nurseries.
