Submitted By Genny Price
East Bay Community Recovery Project (EBCRP) announces that it has partnered with Giving Tuesday, a movement to create a national day of giving to follow Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It is designed to celebrate and encourage charitable activities that support non-profit organizations, helping to kick off a holiday season of giving. EBCRP is one of over 4,000 agencies nationally who have embraced the Giving Tuesday model.
This year, EBCRP is conducting a campaign to solicit online donations to further its mission of supporting recovery, wellness, and self-sufficiency for individuals and families. EBCRP provides services to low-income Alameda County residents of all ages facing complex behavioral and medical health problems. Its programs aim to break the cycles of addiction, trauma, mental illness, poverty, incarceration, and homelessness. EBCRP believes that all clients, even those who are severely impaired, have the innate capacity to make healthier choices. Whether the client is a drug-exposed infant, a young adult frightened by their first experience of psychosis, or an unemployed veteran facing eviction, EBCRP is there to help them build a healthy and productive future.
This year, Giving Tuesday is on December 3. To make a donation through EBCRP, visit https://donatenow.networkforgood.org/givingtuesday2013.
