TAO member, Cindy Singer, lost her beloved son, Rory, to an accidental opioid overdose in 2015. In the beginning of 2016, she was invited to attend a Palm Beach County Drug Awareness Coalition meeting where people from all facets of the community met once a week to discuss solutions to this pervasive health crisis that is plaguing our nation. That is where she met her friend, and fellow warrior mom, Staci Katz. Staci’s son had recently celebrated one year of sobriety after struggling for the past 8 years with his battle with drugs. Cindy and Staci decided not to sit idly by while so many people were losing their lives, one person in our country, every 15 minutes, to a drug overdose.
Their goal is to raise awareness and funds for food, clothing, transportation, sober housing and other necessities for those people who have achieved successful treatment and are embarking on a life of sober living.
The TAO community and All Fed have pledged to feed the hungry, many of whom are in early recovery. Rabbi Marc and the All Fed members are supportive of their efforts as they tackle this challenge by asking our TAO community to donate non-perishable food items, which will be distributed to homeless shelters and sober living homes by volunteers from TAO and volunteers from the sober community. Over the holidays, food donations (including turkeys) were delivered to The Soup Kitchen and to two sober homes in Palm Beach County.
Please continue to donate food and essential toiletries. They will be collected at our TAO services and events. They thank you from the bottom of their hearts for your unwavering support as a community as you help them to help others.
They are moms on a mission!
