Lights of Hope 2017

There are many of us here in Pitt County who have, had, and are currently being  affected with this pandemic called Addiction.  One out of every three families now in the United States, is currently affected.  Many of our Pitt County Residents know this all too well.  Our Overdose rate here in Pitt County is growing every day.

We invite you to be part of our Lights of Hope event on Sunday, September 24th at 6-9 pm at Guy Smith Stadium.

Our primary goal is to bring awareness to Addiction, and issues that relate to Addiction, not only for the Addict but for Loved Ones. Tim Ryan will be our guest speaker.
Please plan to join us at this special event. More information can be found at the national website:
