The S.T.A.R.S. Program (Scholarship Trust for Addiction Recovery Services) is excited to invite you to join us at our 2nd annual “Restore Your Spirit Celebration & Vigil” where together we will recognize and celebrate National Recovery month. The S.T.A.R.S. Program is a 501 © 3 that raises and distributes funds in New Hampshire for motivated individuals who are seeking support in their recovery from substance use disorder. Since August of 2015 we’ve helped numerous individuals in a variety of ways, i.e. purchasing steel toed boots, getting their driver’s license reinstated and paying rent for 1-2 weeks for their recovery housing.
Restore Your Spirit Celebration and Vigil is a free, family orientated event that will provide you and the public with resources and education about substance use disorder (alcoholism & drug addiction), prevention and treatment. This is a forum to help educate the public so that their perception and the way that they respond to the people who suffer from substance use disorder will begin to shatter the stigma that is associated with it. This is a positive celebration that will include live music from people who are in recovery and advocates who will speak about the effects of prevention and treatment. Our goal is to promote public awareness that people can and do recover, and honor their success. We will remember lives lost and their families because not one more parent should lose a child to the disease of addiction.
Here is one of the many testimonies that we’ve received: “I want to start off saying thank you for all you do to help those in recovery. Your program has greatly made an impact in my life. With all the stressors of early recovery financial insecurity is a burden that I have in the past relapsed over. With the struggle of trying to manage everything from I.O.P to getting a job, food, etc., it was reassuring when your program offered to help me out with my rent.” Jasmine L.
We would like to ask you to consider becoming one of the S.T.A.R.S. Program 2017 sponsors for this great event so that we can continue to help people like Jasmine. Included with this letter is a 2017 sponsorship proposal packet for you to review.
