Fredericton, NB, October 15, 2013 – “Children don’t dream of becoming addicts” is the slogan for Portage Atlantic’s first online fundraiser for youth addiction treatment, now officially launched at www.Rally4Dreams.ca.
Portage Atlantic has set an ambitious goal of $30,000 for this 55-day online fundraiser and welcomes donations, big and small, to help reach this objective. Funds generated from the project will help Portage Atlantic enhance its programming and services in three main areas of need: the Aftercare Program, which supports youth as they transition back into their home communities, extra-curricular activities for the youth in treatment, and continuing education for Portage Atlantic staff members.
Visit www.Rally4Dreams.ca today and find out how you can help youth struggling with addiction find their way on the road to recovery, so that they may rediscover their dreams.
