Last week marked the completion of Projectline’s holiday drive. We filled a 14 ft. U-haul (three times) and my car (twice) to fulfill the holiday wishes of 67 women and children receiving aid from New Traditions, a chemical dependency treatment center. We donated so many new and used items that we were able to adopt additional individuals that weren’t on our shopping list.
From bicycles and playpens to much-needed sheets, socks, and dishes, we donated over $12,000 in new gifts, used goods, and cash.
On a personal note…last week, as I was dropping off a truck full of donations, I came across a young woman (probably under 18 years old) crying as she filled out her intake forms to start treatment. Without New Traditions, this girl would have nowhere to turn when she needed help. I’m very proud of Projectline and our outpouring of support for New Traditions. This facility is less than 8 miles from Projectline headquarters and gives women and children a better chance at living a healthy, drug free, and productive life. Projectline’s support of the families receiving treatment at New Traditions has been a heartwarming demonstration of Projectline’s commitment to making a positive impact in our community.
