BENEFITING: YMCA of Greater New York
ORGANIZER: YMCA of Greater New York
EVENT: 2017 Annual Campaign
EVENT DATE: Jan 01, 2017
Most of you know that I am not usually one to ask for donations, knowing that we all give where and when we can to the causes most important to us.
As a member of the YMCA Counseling Service's Committee of Management, I realize the magnitude of what this organization does for so many families affected by addiction, whether it be drugs, alcohol, or both. I thought I knew enough about the responsibility the individual has to manage his or her problem. What I did not realize is how so many are affected by addiction, including young children, siblings, spouses, parents, co-workers... the list goes on. They suffer silently and are as much in need of help as the addict.
The YMCA Counseling Service offers many programs to help everyone affected by addiction, not just the addict. We have a drug epidemic on Staten Island that crosses all gender and socioeconomic levels. Please join me in helping the Y continue to provide their services to all, so we can hopefully one day eradicate this epidemic and give hope to everyone involved. The size of your donation does not matter. Smaller donations add up and do make a difference.
Thank you for listening and sharing in my cause.
