Many, many thanks to all the helping hands that have transformed our TTM Free Store inside and out!
First of all, thanks to the many volunteers who have helped with the transition in one form or another. The hard-working Renovations team, especially Mary Van Horn and Debbie O’Donnell, with Kathy Lundgren and Ramnath Shanbhag, who have designed and managed the interior reconstruction of the store to make it more functional, more user- and volunteer-friendly, and more beautiful! Thanks also to the Documents and Training team, Dawn Wesley, Aleisa Myles, Emma Medina-Casterjon, and Sari Steuber, for creating new manuals and other volunteer documents, and for designing the training. Special thanks to Karen Lillie for getting us started with her draft of the new manual. Other volunteers who have lent a hand are too numerous to mention – Mark Fabian, Lea Slamowitz and Linda Zuniga, Alex and Katrina, Robin O’Brien, Doris Bartlett, Martin Pepper, Jerry Baber, to name a few. And a very special thanks to Rhonda Fabian who has put in countless hours and been the guiding force for this whole adventure!
We also want to thank our exceptional professional workers who have generously given of their time and talent at very reduced rates:
Alec Gutowiecz, 609-541-1035, the “stair man” and master carpenter who created our lovely new intake counter.
Please give these talented people your business if you need these kinds of work done – they work with great skill and great caring!
