ROCKLAND — The Mid-Coast Recovery Coalition will be holding its first annual Summer Community Barbecue and Fundraiser event on Saturday, June 5. The open-to-all event starts at 11 a.m., at the Friends House, on 22 Brewster Street, in Rockland, and will be filled with food, fun and raffles.
The event will help to raise additional funding to provide repairs and renovations to The Friends House as part of the Coalition’s capital campaign. Some of the repairs include the addition of a first-floor bathroom and extensive renovations to the parking area.
The Friends House provides a healing environment in which the residents spend time together for support, while establishing employment and connections to other local resources in the community that assist their recoveries, according to the Coalition, in a news release. The repairs will provide for an even safer and a more effective place for those committed to recovery from addiction.
Mid-Coast Recovery Coalition, established in 2016, is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide support to individuals and families seeking help and healing to address the challenge of addiction.
