The entire Working Wardrobes family has lost a truly wonderful friend. Anna Conrekas, Working Wardrobes board member and District Manager of US Bank, passed away suddenly on August 31, 2017 after a valiant battle with cancer. Anna was our very dear friend, tireless advocate and supporter and it was because of her voice that everyone at US Bank knew about Working Wardrobes!
No one could recruit a team of volunteers faster than Anna. No one gathered as many clothes from colleagues than Anna. No one provided the guidance and counsel as generously as Anna. And no one raised as much money for our mission than Anna.
She was a remarkable volunteer with a powerful voice and spirit. Anna, your memory will remain forever in our hearts. Your impact on the lives of our clients will be a lasting legacy here at Working Wardrobes and for that, we are very grateful. We love you and will miss you.
There is so little we can do to properly honor the incredible contributions Anna made to our organization but we wanted her legacy to live on among our clients to whom she provided her unwavering passion and support.
Now The Anna Conrekas Scholarship Fund, in conjunction with a generous initial donation from the wonderful team at US Bank, will support deserving clients so they can participate in the training programs they wish. Anna loved our banking initiative and the National Retail Federation Customer Service and Sales program, and now more clients will be able to take part in these valuable training programs. If you would like to lend your support to the scholarship fund as well, use the donate link below.
