Thanks, Rieke, for giving!
Thank you for being such a giving community.
The cart for our food pantry is often full with more coming each week. Holiday giving is underway for Rieke families in need. Clothing has been coming in for the PTA Clothing Closet, and Wilson High School will now be taking our long-unclaimed lost-and-found items to Community Transitional School for elementary-age students.
I also want to thank secretary Zach Prichard for his tireless work and our two veteran substitute secretaries Connie Marsden and Lynda Gordan, who will be with us at least through Winter Break. They - and great parent volunteers - are doing such an amazing job of keeping our office humming.
When I think about what makes a strong community, the ability to reach out and meet needs as they emerge is such a core piece.
I am humbled by and grateful for the Rieke community.
