Dear TRRCOPO,Spring is right around the corner and that always heralds new things and new life. We have quite a few new things happening at our agency right now. Read below to see what’s going on right now.Sincerely,
We had a SUPER donation campaign for our Souper Bowl of Caring food drive back in February. We had over 665 food items donated to our food pantries in Brown and Pike Counties. Each of our departments had a competition to see which group could bring in the most donated items. Our Community Services Department won and had a part and was awarded an awesome ice cream cake.

We have several positions open right now. Follow the link below if you are interested in working for our agency.
