SHE IS GOING THROUGH MORE CHANGES!!
The Rainier Hisotircal Society is in the process of restoring this historic school for public use for the past six years and a lot has been happening. Some of it good and some not so good. After starting the Rainier Food Bank in 2005 the folks in charge took everything plus and formed a new food bank now serving clients in the Valley Heart Church. We wish them well. The Rainier Food Bank in the historic school is at this time closed down and not serving clients. Due to changes in the historic codes that we were unaware of the building was closed down for a short time. We are up and running again with both the Thrift Store and the Library open for business. We are an all volunteer building and value both our volunteers and clients. Come see us at:
