Rebuilding Healthy Lives – Hope and Courage
Confronting the COVID and Opioid Pandemics
A tradition transitions, in an unprecedented year
It’s been a tradition since 1981! Every Winter, Outreach’s Metropolitan Luncheon brought us together to recognize, honor, and celebrate our colleagues and partners in the New York business, labor and trade communities whose enduring commitment helps support Outreach’s lifesaving work in building healthy lives. 2020 would have marked our 39th Annual Metropolitan Luncheon event.
Though the COVID-19 pandemic made it impossible to gather in person, Outreach’s work continues and is more important than ever. Resilient and adaptive to our changing reality, we are happy to introduce “Outreach’s 39th Annual Metropolitan Virtual Online Hope & Courage Donor Campaign” and invite your support.
The “Hope & Courage” campaign is an online fundraising effort that will culminate in a very special “broadcast” premiering on Outreach’s media platforms on Friday, December 18th at 12 noon. The “event”-premiere with the hashtag, #HopeAndCourage2020, will feature special presentations and remarks, virtual walkthroughs of Outreach’s treatment programs, and powerful stories from our clients and staff. Notably, our esteemed honorees this year are our very own Outreach Health Care Heroes!
You can make a difference
The goal of the Hope and Courage campaign is to raise support for Outreach to continue to make a difference in the lives of adolescents, adults and families who are struggling with the devastating consequences of drug and alcohol addiction, and are now having to do so in the face of two pandemics – COVID-19 and opioid addiction. We are incredibly grateful for your compassion and generosity and need your help now more than ever, during this unprecedented time.
