How you can help those struggling with addiction in New Jersey

As you know, I have worked closely with one of the greatest champions in the fight against addiction for many years.

My friends at CFC Loud N Clear have been on the front lines since 2011. They primarily serve Ocean, Monmouth, and Bergen counties in New Jersey.

Literally thousands of lives have been saved due to their intervention, recovery techniques and sober living structure.

This week they are hosting their annual gala to raise money for this important cause.

As you know, the addiction crisis has worsened over the past two years as irresponsible and reckless government mandates have further pushed people in need of help into self-isolation. More than 100,000 Americans lost the battle between April 2020 and April 2021.

CFC’s mission is critical to the future of our state and our nation. Helping families support those who are hurting and providing people who are overcoming addiction the opportunity to live a life of sobriety is part of what SWC offers.

Join me at the annual Farmingdale’s Farm Gala.

We’re fresh off of last weekend’s race where we circled the track at record speeds to support the cause. Well, CFC’s Daniel Regan hit record speed, beating my time by 19 seconds. Yes, that’s a huge win around a 2.25 mile track!

Support this important cause.

One day I hope we live long enough to see the day when services like this are no longer needed, today is not the day.

For now, help if you can. Thank you and see you soon at the Gala!
