Volunteers and Community Groups Brighten the Holidays for People in Early Recovery

Volunteers showered POWER clients with love through meals, parties, and gifts during the 2021 holiday season!

Volunteers from Rodman Street Missionary Church and First Unitarian Church delivered handmade holiday meals to the POWER House, and Kelly Morgano included the women in her holiday cookie exchange.

Long-time volunteer Rosemary Hulsman helped organize her 30th holiday gift project! Clients received gifts from Delta Kappa Gamma, Ladies of Charity, Shadyside Presbyterian Church, St. Catherine Laboure Parish, Esmark Stars Hockey Team, Michelle Ivosevic, and Karen McCue.

Committing to recovery is one of the best things a parent can do for her family, but the holidays can be especially difficult for children whose mothers are in residential treatment. Kathy Garrison and members of Christ Our Savior Parish made the season a little brighter by donating gifts to the children of POWER clients.

And, of course, no holiday season is complete without the holiday parties! Patty Lilja, Karen McCue, and Michelle Ivosevic hosted special events at POWER House, showing women in early recovery that they can look forward to celebrations without substance use.

My clients were ecstatic about the Christmas gifts they received from POWEROne of my clients became very emotional due to his church not having an extra coat or hoodie and POWER giving him one. So thank you! 🙏🏼

Thank you to everyone who gave their time, talents, and treasure to POWER this holiday season! People in early recovery are often still dealing with the consequences of their addiction, including financial difficulties and strained relationships. Your generosity goes a long way to helping them stay committed to the healing process.
