2020 is a year by which nearly every standard imaginable, simply can't be over soon enough! Challenge after challenge, frustration after frustration, loss after loss. And yet, this week we will pause to give thanks for the many blessings we enjoy because despite the havoc 2020 has raged, there is still certainly much to be thankful for.

Professionally I am thankful for the incredibly dedicated staff of WCAC who have adjusted - and readjusted - to our ever changing 'new normal' in an effort to provide consistent and compassionate assistance to those in need. I am thankful for our Board of Directors who provide a comittment to the stewardship of our mission. We as a team are thankful for our many, many community partners and supporters without whom doing our work would be near impossible to do throughout the year. Special shout-outs to the amazing employees of MAPFRE Insurance and the wonderful generosity of Bank of America, both of which just this week made incredible contributions to support WCAC's work as noted below.

While celebrations will inevitably look and feel different this year, I wish you peace and an opportunity to reflect on all that we collectively have to give thanks for.
