DANVILLE — Community leaders gathered on Saturday for the formal dedication of new facilities which house the Sanctuary Community Action, Danville Interchurch Emergency Assistance and the Church Mouse Thrift Shop.
The two-building complex replaces the old Danville Church of Christ building, which had served as the agencies’ headquarters since 1995.
The larger of the two buildings, the Sanctuary’s Service Center at 394 S. Market St., represents an extensive renovation of the 3,000-square-foot, two-story home previously known locally as the “yellow house.”
A new 2,640-square-foot single-story building faces Rambo Street and houses the Interchurch offices and Church Mouse Thrift Shop.
Mayor Robert Dile called the new and refurbished facilities “a beacon of hope for Eastern Knox County,” while delivering a proclamation from the Danville Village Council.
