January News & Updates
I am writing this note in an echo-y, bare office. It has been a bittersweet month here at the WRC as we sort, organize, pack, and move out of this beautiful old building we have called home for 30 years. I have worked at the WRC for nearly 20 of those years, and I still can’t really imagine this not being our home base.
We have been reminded of so much of the WRC’s history as we pack up, and have made fun discoveries sorting through files, boxes, and shelves. We watched as the memorial bricks were meticulously taken out of the ground, carefully packed up, awaiting our new permanent home.
It has also been wonderful sharing with our non-profit partners as we downsize our offices. Furniture and other office items are all off to good homes with partners doing amazing work in the community. Extra office supplies were carted down to Thompson Middle School, where they were accepted enthusiastically. We certainly have been reminded what an amazing community we are a part of.
As you will note in our message below, we are still very much here! We are open and providing critical services to the community. We will keep you all in the loop as the next phase of our journey unfolds. As always, we are grateful for your commitment to the mission of the WRC.
