In a tremendous show of community support to help change and save lives affected by the addiction epidemic, Meredith Rotary Club and Middleton Building Supply stepped forward to help increase the number of licensed treatment beds at Farnum North, a program of Easter Seals in Franklin, NH, to battle the addiction epidemic in New Hampshire.
In addition to Meredith Rotary Club’s $5,500 gift, more than 30 club members spent three days framing and installing 29 doors, with materials provided at a significant discount from Middleton Building Supply.
“More than just hours of labor and financial support; the Meredith Rotary Club has helped us to create an environment in which people can recover and move forward in their lives, said Easter Seals NH Senior Vice President of Substance Abuse Dr. Cheryl Wilkie. “With New Hampshire ranking 49th in access to treatment for substance addiction, and heroin use one of the state’s most significant health issues, this contribution makes a critical impact for Granit State residents.”
The Farnum North campus consists of Webster Place, a 42-bed facility and Ray House, a 21-bed facility serving women, veterans, and first responders.
"Rotary's motto is Service above Self. Our club exemplified this through our gift and hands-on service to help Farnum North save Lakes Region lives,” said Meredith Rotary Major Project Manager Jim McFarlin.
