"The Boys and Girls Club is near and dear to my heart." Tracie Smith, Willingway Clinical Director
Statesboro, GA (PRWEB) February 05, 2015
Willingway’s Clinical Director, Tracie Smith, received recognition and a commemorative plate for her volunteer leadership for the Haunted Forest. The commemorative plate has special significance as it was hand crafted by the children of the Boys and Girls Club as a tribute to the teamwork and dedication of Ms Smith as well as the Willingway staff in making the Haunted Forest a huge success.
Among those in attendance at the annual meeting were the Boys and Girls Club Board of Directors, a representation of some of Statesboro’s top community leaders, as well as representatives from Willingway. Ms Smith was presented the award by Boys and Girls Club Executive Director, Mike Jones.
The Haunted Forest is an annual fundraiser with all the proceeds this past year benefiting the Boys and Girls Club. Ms Smith had this to say, “The Boys and Girls Club is near and dear to my heart because the work and attention they give to the kids of Bulloch County is a powerful resource for prevention.” The Willingway staff and Ms Smith have been active volunteers and advocates for the Haunted Forest since 2008. This project is a win/win partnership between Willingway and the Boys and Girls Club as the extended care programs of Willingway are able to provide service work to the community which is a very important component of the addiction recovery process. The partnership has yielded in excess of $75,000 for the support of programs for the Boys & Girls Club.
