Two Rivers Regional Council of Public Officials will not be seeing clients face-to-face, but will continue to do its best to serve those who need assistance during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Even though we are not a specific part of state government, we are under certain personnel regulations just like a component state agency,” said TRRC Executive Director Bob Gough. “When it comes to things like the current situation, we will follow the state’s decision-making regarding such things as allowing employees to work from home and other issues.”

“We extend our gratitude for the fine work being done in our community during this crisis. Service providers are who people turn to in these times and we still need to serve. However, we are asked to make difficult decisions balancing the best interests of our staff and the public.”
TRRC will continue to operate its food pantries that serve the areas in Pike and Brown Counties.

The food pantry in Pike County located at 120 S. Madison, Pittsfield, will expand hours of operation to Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The food pantry in Brown County located at 206 SW Cross, Mt. Sterling, will be open on the regularly scheduled day; Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Measures are being taken to ensure the safety of everyone so expect a few changes: Food will be provided, but there will be no selection process allowed. Those needing food will be handed a box with the basics.

The REACHOUT Center Thrift Store, located at 120 S. Madison, Pittsfield, is closed until further notice.

TRRC employees will remain available to take calls at the following numbers:
QUINCY: 217-224-8171
