Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) May 23, 2013
Len the Plumber will host a spring picnic on May 23, 2013 at The Baltimore Station. This event is the third event they have hosted since 2012 and one they will continue to hold every year. Len the Plumber staff and their family members will spend time with the residents participating in the program by not only serving the food but also sitting down and sharing their meal and dinner time conversation.
The Baltimore Station is a local residential treatment center established in 1987 for the purpose of supporting men as they transition from addiction, poverty, and/or homelessness to self-sufficiency. The majority of the residents they serve are veterans. The difference between The Baltimore Station and other recovery centers is that they not only help residents end substance abuse; they work with them to transform their entire life by teaching them life skills, personal responsibility, and improved decision making. This process is introduced in three phases that can take up to two years to complete.
Len Bush explained why The Baltimore Station was an organization he chose to support, “When I first learned about The Baltimore Station, I was truly impressed with the results they got; a 65% success rate. They provide everything from continuing education to job placement and help these men get back on their feet. The fact that it's home is in South Baltimore, where I grew up, made the decision to support The Baltimore Station that much easier for me.”
In the past year, Len the Plumber has hosted a Crab Feast for its residents as well as serving a spaghetti dinner. They are committed to hosting the crab feast annually as well as the spring picnic for the men.
For the upcoming picnic, Len the Plumber plans to grill delicious food and participate in a softball game as well as other outdoor activities with the residents. Sharing a meal and participating in these events helps the residents get reacquainted with positive social interactions and the community they will eventually be integrated back into.
Len the Plumber looks forward to continuing their support for The Baltimore Station and growing the wonderful relationship that they have with the staff and volunteers. Being able to participate with local non-profits in their community is important to Len the Plumber and its employees. This is one small way for them to give back to the community they have served for the past 18 years.
