And Continuing Supporters!

This is an exciting time at Anixter Center. The past few months have been very busy implementing some changes and new programs and working hard toward building a productive future for Anixter Center.

Against this backdrop of progress and excitement for the future, we continue to face the day to day challenges of an uncertain state budget. While it is still too early to know the impact, we do know that we must prepare. The private support that our donors provide is more important to us than ever. Thank you for continuing to support Anixter Center. It is because of your continued support that we are able to face the future with confidence and determination to improve the lives of people with disabilities.



Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.
