As of May 14th, John Gilbert, our warehouse manager is no longer working here. We have posted his job to our Facebook
page and are working on setting up an account with WorkSource to get it posted there as well. In the meantime, we
have added Tammy, our operations manager, to the VOA grant, as this is a “use it or lose it” grant.
*ECEAP is done for the summer and the meal program will resume after the break.
