Petersen Medical, a leading provider of home medical equipment and dedicated in-home professional service, today announced that it has donated over $1,700 to the Samaritan Outreach Network Project (SON Project) in an effort to support and give back to the community. The SON Project is a non-profit organization that aids both youth and adults in overcoming drug addiction.
"Since its inception the SON Project has strived to enrich and protect the lives of teenagers and adults throughout the community," said Dan Grinder, president of the SON Project. "By educating parents and at-risk youth we feel we can save individuals from the pain and devastation that drug and alcohol addiction can bring. Only through charitable donations made by caring community members can we help these individuals in need. We are extremely grateful to Petersen Medical for its generous donation and obvious concern for our community."
The SON Project helps people regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, culture, or financial status. Not only does the SON Project educate its participants on how to identify the warning signs of drug and alcohol abuse, but it specifically focuses its efforts on teaching its participants new skills. Those skills include both job and interpersonal skills enabling each participant to become a contributing community member with a decreased chance of relapse.
"The SON Project is an effective charitable organization that directly impacts the community around us," said Tom Bradley, president and CEO of Petersen Medical. "Drug education is vital for the safety of every community. Petersen Medical has supported and will continue to support organizations such as these that make a positive difference."
