Year End Campaign


As I reflect on this past year, I am mindful that we’ve traveled alongside our clients through an ongoing pandemic – from a breaking point to a turning point. This moment of crisis created an opportunity for Wilkinson Center to build upon our legacy of service, with new eyes to innovate and provide thoughtful ways to support our community. While our staff was focused on responding swiftly to the immediate challenges, we also kept hold of our vision for the road ahead. This resiliency is why we at Wilkinson Center are optimistic about the future. We are On The Move with greater determination than ever: providing families with pathways forward to self-sufficiency.

In the depths of the pandemic, Wilkinson Center’s Food Pantry never closed. In order to continue providing food to our clients, we pivoted to a curbside delivery system. Staff and volunteers packed boxes of non-perishable foods such as pasta, canned beans and vegetables along with boxes of perishable food including dairy products, meat and eggs for each family. With health and safety in mind, food boxes were efficiently delivered to vehicles without clients ever stepping foot inside the Pantry. Knowing our senior population was at higher risk, we adapted a food delivery program to deliver this vital service to their doorstep. Regular donation drives for back-to-school, turkeys at Thanksgiving, and holiday toys also utilized the curbside delivery method. In order to keep students in class, we supplied computers, tablets, hot spots, and implemented virtual classes for adult learners.

As we celebrate our accomplishments, we are also humbled by the hardships of the past year. We are truly grateful for your participation, presence, and contributions that make this impact possible. Next year, Wilkinson Center will enter its 40th year of service to our community. Your support has empowered us to get this far, enabling Wilkinson Center to become an agent of real change in the community. With your continued investment, our pathway forward is bright. This is an exciting time to be part of Wilkinson Center. We are On the Move!

In gratitude,
Anne S. Reeder
Executive Director
