Halstead/Metroflor Addiction Crisis Big Bang Charity Event Raised $80K
Calhoun, GA, May 17, 2021-The Halstead/Metroflor Addiction Crisis charity (HMAC) final, major “Big Bang” fundraiser on May 6 in Cartersville, Georgia raised record funds of over $80,000 for its rehabilitation facility partners. The fundraiser is the culmination of a two-year grassroots campaign by HMTX Industries employees to help those in need who are suffering from the disease of addiction. HMAC provides rehabilitation “scholarships” and support for families who otherwise would not be financially able to save their loved ones suffering from substance addiction disorders.
HMAC is literally a “Stone’s throw away” from its ultimate goal of raising $500,000, which will be matched dollar for dollar by the Stone family for a total of $1 million. HMAC has already raised $320,000 including Big Bang proceeds. The tax-deductible donations benefit a nonprofit 501(c)(3) partnership with “Faith in Four: Recovery, Prevention, Education and Treatment”, to fund the scholarships at six fully vetted agencies across the U.S. offering substance abuse rehabilitation, education and after care.
Habitat for Humanity’s Jeremy Kraut-Ordover, VP individual giving, presented Harlan Stone with a special award, the Humanitarian Achievement Award – Industry and Philanthropy. Said Kraut-Ordover introducing the award to Stone, “Your leadership exactly aligns with Habitat’s values of courage, accountability and humility. You’ve made it your life’s work to improve communities. There are a lot of people who lead companies, but not a lot who motivate their teams to really live a philanthropic value.”
The HMAC fundraising efforts will continue as the group strives to hit the $1 million mark.
