The North Shore Key Club Presents “Compassion in Action” Event, January 6, 2016, NS High School Theatre
On Wednesday, January 6, 2016, the North Shore Key Club will host “Compassion in Action,” a community awareness event educating its audience on substance abuse while providing a message of help and hope to all. This evening will aim to change the dialogue to show more compassion for an issue that affects millions nationwide. Beginning at 6:30 PM, guest speakers including Anthony Rizzuto, the founder of the FIST (Families in Support of Treatment) Organization, will address topics on substance abuse including Prevention, Treatment, Recovery, and Advocacy. At 7:30 PM, a Resource Fair encompassing professionals from over 12 substance abuse programs as well as representatives from prominent self-help groups from Nassau and Suffolk counties will provide a range of treatment options, resources, and referrals.
Key Club President Elias Mastakouris said, “The program is distinctly different from most other substance abuse events. We’re responding to an epidemic on Long Island in a more compassionate way. We hope to shed light on the true nature of substance abuse, reach out to people who are struggling, and empower community members to become involved.” The North Shore Key Club is very proud of their outstanding accomplishments in providing services that demonstrate their active citizenship. Key Club members strive to make a difference in their community and focus on issues that can affect each and every one of us.
North Shore Key Club Advisor, Ms. Julia Salat said, “This event will help bring members of the Long Island community together and provide awareness and information to those currently struggling with substances, in treatment, or facing potential addiction.”
Join us at the “Compassion in Action” event on Wednesday, January 6, 2016 in the North Shore High School Theatre beginning at 6:30 PM and help be part of the solution. You will not regret it!
