A Forever Recovery Sponsors "Candy Mountain" at Word of Life Christian Church in Flint, MI
Date:11/30/2015

In an effort to provide local families with a safe and fun atmosphere for Halloween festivities, the Word of Life Christian Church of Flint, MI, hosted a family-oriented evening themed on “Candy Land”, the classic children’s board game, and featuring a giant 1.25 ton pile of candy dubbed “Candy Mountain”.

A Forever Recovery, a holistic treatment center for substance abuse located in Southwest Michigan, joined forces with Community Advocates Uplifting Student Excellence (CAUSE) to sponsor the event, which saw thousands of area residents participating in games, face painting, magic shows, and, of course, lots of candy.

“Our youth is the future of our nation, and the security of our culture,” commented A Forever Recovery founder Per Wickstrom. “As we battle the epidemic of substance abuse that plagues our society today, we must educate our young people on the dangers of drugs and alcohol. By offering them positive and fun alternatives, and creating a safe and protected environment where they are free to be kids, we are showing our youth that there is a better way of life. We are offering them a hope that is not possible in a lifestyle of substance abuse. We were honored to take part once again in the Candy Land event, and we look forward to continuing our partnership with CAUSE.”

Pastor George Wilkinson of the Word of Life Christian Church is one of the members of CAUSE, and was one of the lead organizers of the Candy Land event. In an interview recorded on Halloween, just before the function took place at the church that he serves, Pastor Wilkinson explained what CAUSE seeks to accomplish in the area. “We focus on pouring back into the community through nonprofit organizations that are focused on academics, athletics, and art excellence,” he says.

Born in 2013 as an outreach of Young-Life Ministries, CAUSE is scheduled to become its own 501c3 nonprofit organization in the last quarter of 2015, seeking to promote and support various groups that encourage education, athleticism, and artistic expression among youth in Flint and the surrounding areas.

As sponsor of the Candy Land function, A Forever Recovery’s participation in the event was certainly appreciated. “A Forever Recovery is a significant community partner with us because we are focused on our youth,” Pastor Wilkinson continues, “and how we can positively impact our youth, in terms of their focus on being the kind of people that we want them to be, to prevent drug abuse and addiction. We are extremely thankful for A Forever Recovery for being so focused on uplifting the community and allowing young lives to become what they should be.” A video of Pastor Wilkinson’s interview and footage from the Candy Land event are available on the A Forever recovery YouTube channel.
