RCB Donates $500 to Reading Coalition Against Substance Abuse
Reading, MA – Reading Cooperative Bank (RCB) recently made a $500 contribution to the Reading Coalition Against Substance Abuse (RCASA) for the organization’s “Jams for Jake” music festival. RCASA strives to create a space for open and honest reflection on the effects of the opioid crisis in our lives and communities. The Coalition seeks to break down the misconceptions and stigmas around addiction that keep people from getting the help they desperately need, forcing families and loved ones to suffer profound hardships and losses.
“What an incredible experience it was to witness the support and compassion of family, friends and other members of our community,” said Melissa Finn, Banking Specialist in RCB’s Woburn branch, who attended the event. “To see all the musicians and friends of Jake honoring his memory and helping to raise awareness was inspiring to watch. You truly felt the power of music, as it brought all these people together with the spirit to affect change and make a positive difference in the community.”
All money raised went to expenses involved in running the “Jams for Jake” community festival, including continued support of RCSA’s ongoing initiatives to provide help to families that are struggling.
