Remember that when you use to shop, RCIL will receive a donation!  All you have to do is type in and chose the Resource Center for Independent Living, Inc. (RCIL) then shop like normal on Amazon.  Amazon will then credit RCIL with a donation.  (This is all year long, not just Black Friday.)

All offices will be closed Thursday and Friday, November 28th and 29th, to celebrate Thanksgiving!

We’re Thankful!

Tania Harrington, Director of Quality Assurance – “Family, friends, independence, choice, the ADA, the Rehab Act”

Beth Combes, Information and Outreach Coordinator – “I’m thankful for working with caring and positive people.”

Adam Burnett, Director of Core Services – “I’m thankful for every new day and to work at a place with such great people.”

Linda Morris, Independent Living Specialist – “Family and great co-workers”

Summer Ludwig, Targeted Case Manager – “I am thankful for the wonderful people I work with and the knowledge that the independent living movement is still alive and strong in Kansas.”

Andrea Hermreck, Targeted Case Manager – “I am thankful for my family, friends, health, job and life in general.”

As for myself I’m thankful for so many everyday items that get overlooked like running water, hot water, toilet paper, my own tooth brush and clothes.  I also am thankful for the many people in my life that motivate me and help me when needed such as family, co-workers, and friends.

Please feel free to post what you are thankful for this season and enjoy your holiday.
