Volunteering in the Community with Ken Seeley Recovery Community
In our efforts to help de-stigmatize addiction, and also promote recovery, Ken Seeley Recovery Community volunteers at the Palm Springs Street fair every Thursday. Volunteering visibly in the community helps the general public understand the difference between an active addict, and an addict in recovery. The guests at KSRC have built a relationship with some of the vendors at the fair who need extra help because of their age or physical ailments. Every week the vendors booths get setup on time by addicts in recovery; this helps the community understand that in recovery we can be reliable and responsible. A key piece of KSRC's volunteer regiment is wearing our "Recovery at Work" shirts. By wearing our shirts, we make ourselves easily accessible for requests from vendors and also for questions from the public regarding addiction or recovery. Just last week a young lady approached one of the guests because of their shirt. Through talking with one of the KSRC guests, the young lady ended up discovering that there is a solution to her struggle with addiction, and also made plans to attend her first AA convention with the house. Reaching addicts who are still struggling, and helping our community, that is truly "Recovery at Work".
