Battle Creek, Michigan (PRWEB) April 07, 2015
On Thursday, March 12, 2015, A Forever Recovery, an open-ended, results-based holistic treatment center for substance abuse, announced that it will contribute to the fund-raising efforts of the local police department’s K9 unit. Later this year, the Battle Creek, MI police department will retire their current trained drug-sniffing dog, and is currently working with the Post Community Credit Union to raise money for a new one.
Anti-drug Efforts in Battle Creek
The Executive Director of A Forever Recovery, Pamela Anderson, expressed her desire for solidarity with Battle Creek Police Department’s anti-drug efforts, making it a point to inform a local news source, the Battle Creek Enquirer, that A Forever Recovery’s role is not just in the treatment of addiction but also in doing whatever they can to help keep the community that they call home safe and drug-free.
“We want to help the police department,” she says, “because they are doing the job of getting drugs off the street.”
A certified drug detection dog is highly specialized, and comes with a price tag to match. The goal of Post Community Credit Union is to raise $12,000 to put towards this purchase. A Forever Recovery has pledged to match all donations, up to a total of $5000, which will cover just over 40% of the total cost of the dog, or around 83% with the matched donations. Contributions towards the K9 unit’s new drug detection dog, as well as voting submissions for his or her name, can be made at through the credit union's Go Fund Me page here: http://www.gofundme.com/qmpamc.
