CHESTER LIONS CLUB:
Community Hope, founded almost 30 years ago by Carmela Lunt and Eileen Griffith, has created a brighter future for those in our communities disabled by mental illness.
In support of their effort, the Chester Lions Club has donated $3,500 to subsidize Community Hope’s Annual Getaway for the disabled in several Morris County residences. The three day trip is the only opportunity for many of them to experience a holiday. The organization creates a bright future for individuals recovering from mental illness and substance abuse by providing housing and services in a dignified, respectful and person-centered way. Emphasizing wellness and recovery, the programs focus on helping individuals set goals and strive to meet them. Residents attend rehabilitation programs, volunteer their time or secure employment.
Those interested in the Chester Lions Club’s continuing effort to help others can contact Phil Savell at 908 879 6543 or visit our website at wwwchesterlionsclubnj.com.
