We all saw the national news headline last week out of East Liverpool, Ohio—right here in Columbiana County. Legal guardians high on heroin passed out in car with a little boy in the backseat. Heartbreaking.
The staff at The Brightside Project experienced a renewed sense of purpose after that story broke. That is why we have our eyes on one goal—to launch our mobile unit soon. That child in the backseat of that car in East Liverpool is why we are doing this. We want that little boy and all children facing the same struggles to know we care, to know that there is a light, and to know there is a way out of that darkness.
We are happy to report that little boy has a new home.
And we are also happy to report we are one step closer to launching our fundraising campaign to purchase that mobile unit. We hope to report back soon with even more great news. Stay tuned.
