Press Release – PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA – Aug 28, 2017 – Participants in a local leadership program launched a campaign in the beginning of August to raise $50,000 in funds, goods and services for New Leaf Club Community Center, a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization that provides a space for wellness and recovery-related events, activities, lectures, education, and support groups.
This team of 16 diverse individuals will raise the $50,000 through community events, fundraisers, financial donations, and corporate contributions by September 6, 2017.
The New Leaf Club is a nonprofit education and entertainment community center dedicated to assisting young people and adults connect to their whole, healthy, and artistic self. The Club provides a center for today’s youth to socialize in a healthy and energizing environment. It provides a space for dances and musical performances, and an exhibition hall for student art shows, plus so much more.
The New Leaf Club also offers programs that further awareness and promote healing from a number of issues that affect teens and adults. They offer healthy alternatives to pervasive problems such as chemical dependency, depression, and eating disorders.
The New Leaf Club supports youth by providing alternative outlets for socializing in a drug and alcohol-free setting while giving them a place to express their creativity. For many, New Leaf offers a fresh start for youth who have struggled with addiction and provides emotional support for young people making a transition to a healthier lifestyle.
“In today’s society, I don’t know of a family that hasn’t been impacted by chemical dependency, depression, and eating disorders. Bringing more awareness to the efforts of the New Leaf Club serves the community in forging stronger connections” said Paula Mekenney Renneisen, one of the chairs for the initiative.
Her co-chair Pat Stegeland added “I am aware both personally and professionally, as a nurse, of the impact of drug addiction on individuals. This is why I have aligned myself with The New Leaf Club which supports families and communities to thrive in full transformation through healthier, addiction-free living.”
The Next Level team will be holding an upcoming dance-a-thon and other events to raise funds for the organization.
