First Contact “Hope for Henderson County” Open House
“Hope for Henderson County” Charity Auction to Benefit First Contact Drug Addiction Ministries
Local non-profit charity, First Contact Ministries, Inc., is hosting it’s first official fundraising event since acquiring 501(c)3 status earlier this year. The “Hope for Henderson County” Charity Auction will be held on Saturday, October 29 from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. at the Southern Trust Estate & Auction site on 7th Ave in Hendersonville. The event is open to the public, and everyone is invited to come and bid on auction items to benefit the charity.
As addiction grows to epidemic proportions throughout the Western North Carolina region, the group seeks $25,000 to further develop and expand vital rehabilitation and recovery assistance services which are offered to area residents at no cost to them. Donations for auction items are currently being collected by volunteers.
The faith-based organization, founded in 2011 by local families, provides support and guidance to area individuals and families struggling with the trauma related to drug and alcohol addiction. Core services include: crisis assistance, referrals to treatment facilities, guidance, support groups (for individuals and families), as well as coaching, education, and accountability support for individuals in recovery.
To contribute an auction item, please contact program director, Craig Halford, at 699-0161. For more information on First Contact Ministries or to make a secure donation at any time, just fill out the form below or visit our Donate Now page.
