The Encore Thrift Store at the DeWitt County Human Resource Center's East location was gifted by a visit from Congressman Rodney Davis Thursday morning.
He fielded questions from their clients about baseball to Washington D.C. and how democracy works. Congressman Davis says there was a lot of concern about the sacrifices that are being made to take care of their clients.
When it comes to funding for HRC, Davis says he needs the community's help in getting the message of the positive things happening to lawmakers. He says there are some great programs in place and those need to continue.
Davis explains the staff at HRC reached out to his office and invited him to see their operation. He got to see the Encore Thrift Store and the day training that is happening.
He thanked the staff for a warm welcome and allowing him to interact with their clients.
Davis is touring central Illinois with a week home from Washington, D.C.
