This year  we were able to raise more than $18,000.00 which will be split between the three organizations.!! These much-appreciated funds will go towards supporting better mental health, recovery support, and community development here in your local southern Illinois cities.

Christmas Care Packages

Over the last few months, our Peers have been able to work with the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office and Franklin County Jail to develop the Recovery Education and Re-entry Prep Program. This unique Program supports residents of the jail who are seeking recovery from substance use. This year for Christmas our Peers were able to deliver 100 Christmas Care Packages that promote recovery by reconnecting people with a support system that values them and believes that they have purpose and meaning. Each care package also contained a unique Christmas card with a handwritten message of support from our Peers and members of the community.
