Peniel has been invited to participate in this years “Chillin’ For Charity” event held on February 14, 2015. We are excited about this unique opportunity to raise funds for treatment at Peniel and to raise awareness about the drug problem we are facing.

We are extremely proud to be a part of the effort to turn the tide on the addiction problem in our area. Peniel has been fortunate to work with the judicial system, law makers and local law enforcement in a concerted effort to make a difference in our community. All of our efforts are made possible only by the financial support of people who are dedicated to helping those in need. Please help support Peniel Residential Drug-Alcohol Treatment Center by making a donation through our fundraising page. Keep in mind, you don’t have to take the plunge to give –you can simply go to our page and make a donation.

If everyone reading this post donated just $20, the impact made would affect hundreds of lives who need our help and the ripple effects throughout those families and our community would be immeasurable. Every dollar makes a difference! Every dollar makes a difference!

The event is not just about challenging someone to take that icy leap, it’s also about raising awareness and financial support for non-profit organizations doing great things in our community. And all the funds are kept locally, and will directly impact the Cambria/Somerset Community.

Peniel is participating as one of the beneficiaries of the event. Our dormitories were newly constructed when we moved in, but after so many years, the wear and tear of normal use has taken its toll. The monies raised through “Chillin’ For Charity” will go toward refurnishing our dormitories with new bedding, dressers and curios. Completion of this project will supply comfortable housing for our residents and assist us in maintaining our high standard of excellence in care.

Please help support Peniel Residential Drug-Alcohol Treatment Center by making a donation by clicking the “Donate Now” button at the top of the page.
