Charity BINGO Night - 08/18/2018

Come on our for a fun night of BINGO at the Beekman Fire House! Win cash prizes! Doors open up at 5:30pm and calling starts at 7:00pm. Kitchen will be open at 5:30pm. The Matt Herring Foundation is a Grassroots Organization that was formed when the Herring Family after Matthew Herring died from an overdose. The Foundation is committed to providing support through education, awareness, advocacy and through policy as well as legislation. The First Goal was Family Support. When a family member is addicted the stigma leaves an addict’s family alone, hurting, ashamed and oftentimes abandoned by friends and even family members. The Foundation also recognizes the need for a program that will provide 360 degrees of support from detox, through rehabilitation and committed recovery. MATT, which stands for Managing Addiction Through Teamwork, is committed to hosting educational forums, searching for effective programs that will tend to the physical and emotional wellbeing for the whole person and family. Matt Herring Foundation aims to provide assistance to individuals who are struggling as well as their families and loved ones, while working with providers, seeking and implementing services and finding alternatives to opiate abstinence. This foundation is locally based in Hopewell Junction, NY.
