Our Annual Thanksgiving Food Drive

Every year Guardian Recovery organizes a Thanksgiving food drive in order to give back to the community at large. We encourage our staff members and employees to bring in canned goods and other non-perishable food items, and we deliver all of the collected items to local charities in order to help individuals and families in need. This year, local charities are in need of community assistance more than ever before. While this has been a difficult time for all of us, those who are experiencing homelessness and food insecurity have been especially hard hit by the global pandemic. Those without jobs have had an extremely hard time putting food on the table, and many community members have lost their jobs and have been unable to effectively find new ones. There is no question that at this point we all crave some sense of normalcy. Fortunately, we have the opportunity to help bring a traditional holiday feast to families in need by donating food items and in turn facilitating the standard, food-filled Thanksgiving that we all undeniably deserve.

At Guardian Recovery we believe in participating in as many charitable events as we possibly can. Ongoing volunteer work is a staple of our comprehensive program of addiction recovery. In addition to helping community members, our clients learn the importance of giving back whenever possible. by participating in events like our Thanksgiving food drive, clients build self-esteem, develop a sense of gratitude and learn that by staying sober they have the innate ability to continuously help others. To learn more about the charitable events that we participate in or to learn more about our comprehensive and individualized program of addiction recovery, feel free to reach out to us at any point in time. We will gladly supply you with additional resources and answer any additional questions that you may have.

Substance Abuse and The Need For Food

Not knowing where your next meal is going to come from is a huge source of stress, and stress is a major factor in the development and persistence of substance abuse disorders. For this reason, substance abuse and food need are very closely interlinked. This year has been especially difficult, and many community members have experienced more financial insecurity than ever before. High stress levels have contributed to a spike in addiction cases; addiction cases that could be prevented should we all work together to help those who have been struggling. Guardian Recovery encourages participation in numerous annual food drives, not only in hopes of providing nutritious meals to community members who suffer from food need but also in hopes of preventing or reducing the number of substance abuse cases throughout the local community. For more information on all of our annual charitable events, or to learn more about this year’s Thanksgiving food drive, feel free to reach out to us at any point in time.

Giving Back to the Local Community

Not only does participating in annual food drives help local community members in need, but a thorough introduction to the importance of charitable work immensely helps clients who are in one of several stages of our multi-phased program of addiction recovery. At Guardian Recovery we believe in the healing powers of volunteer work. Clients learn that so long as they stay sober, they have the ability to positively impact the lives of others. Volunteer work not only helps build self-esteem, but it fosters a vital sense of gratitude, teaching clients to be grateful for what they do have. While we do not expect our clients to donate canned goods and other non-perishable food items, they do have the opportunity to work directly with one of several charities in delivering and unloading all donations that were made by employees and community members. Many of our clients report that the experience of participating in our Thanksgiving food drive is not only rewarding, but also extremely eye-opening and beneficial in a variety of other ways.
