Every REC Event "gives back" to the community. REC Retreats gives a little something, and as part of the event fee, participants are asked to bring something as well. Money, materials or labors-of-love are donated to non-profit organizations on Lummi Island or in neighboring communities such as the Lummi Nation, Ferndale or Bellingham. As a retreat leader, you will get to choose what will be donated and to whom.
