“This agency has taken on the enormous challenge of addressing addiction and mental health in our community,” Sinjari said.
“They are service providers in the field who work directly with people suffering from addiction. I know that the holiday season can be particularly difficult for people struggling to recover. I hope this meal helps send a loving message that helps your clients return to better health and sobriety. “
This year’s Thanksgiving meal will be held Monday at 5 p.m. at the Hand in Hand location at 3020 Sandwich St.
“We are very grateful for the generosity of Mr. Sinjari, as we could not make this happen without this kind of support,” said Elizabeth Geddes, Executive Chairman of the Board of Hand in Hand.
“This Thanksgiving, we want to make sure that the men and women who stay with us can be part of our family here at Hand in Hand, in recovery, so they can have many more of these special moments. with their own families, in sobriety ”.
