An upcoming community breakfast will raise funds to help an organization that helps youth overcoming drug and alcohol addiction.

Proceeds from the October 26 breakfast at Knox Presbyterian Church in Vankleek Hill will go to Teen Challenge, which operates rehabilitation facilities across Canada.  It is planning to expand its work in eastern Ontario and open its Teen Challenge Ottawa Valley Men’s Centre near Renfrew.  Teen Challenge is a faith-based organization and is establishing partnerships with churches throughout the region for fundraising for the new centre.  The organization has been well-supported by churches and individuals in southwestern Ontario communities for many years.

Teen Challenge has helped thousands of Canadians overcome substance abuse and addiction over the past 30 years.  Its goal is to give freedom to people struggling with addiction and hope for their families.  Men and women 18 years of age and older are eligible for its programs.

Admission for the community breakfast at Knox Presbyterian Church in Vankleek Hill in support of Teen Challenge is $10 per person.  The event takes place from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the church, located at 29 High Street on Saturday, October 26.  To reserve a seat, call Robin McRae at 613-676-0443 or email [email protected]
