In recognition of the 25th Anniversary of The Way Forward Recovery Program at the Rescue Mission, the Skolrood Law Firm is matching gifts to the Mission for the remainder of July, up to $70,000.
"A dollar-for-dollar match leverages further support for our programs at the Mission," says Chief Development Officer Tracy Altizer. "People love knowing their gift will make a much larger impact in changing lives. We're so grateful to Skolrood Law Firm for making the challenge!"
Skolrood is the Presenting Sponsor of the Mission's Rally for Recovery event scheduled at 6:00 p.m. on July 27, 2019 at Berglund Performing Arts Theater. The event will feature acclaimed singer, songwriter and upright bassist Scott Mulvahill in concert, keynote by Dr. Monty Burks from the Tennessee Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services, as well as powerful personal testimonies from graduates and participants of The Way Forward program.
"Substance use disorder is claiming lives, destroying families, straining healthcare and community resources, and costing employers millions in workplace productivity," says Altizer. "It's a community problem that requires a community response, and The Way Forward is an important part of the local response. Besides raising money, our goal is to raise awareness of the program for people who need recovery, and those desiring to learn how to make a difference.”
