Civic Service Report

“I’m going to grieve for him the rest of my life, but I’m going to do what he asked me to do to.”

Patricia Green’s son Danny was in and out of addiction for most of his adult life. He lost that battle 7 years ago due to a Fentanyl overdose. In his passing he left her note to continue his legacy the right way.

“He says so if I’m not here, use me. Don’t grieve me, but use me. This is how I use Danny. I use Danny and his addiction and his problem to help others.”

She started Messengers Supporting Recovery to help those and their families battle addiction in central pa. In hopes to inspire change in at least one person or family.

“I have to wonder what we’re doing right now here that maybe we’ll save one kid out there or help one parent realize their child has a problem.”

A part of the mission is to bring awareness about the issue. And that all starts with honest conversations.

“You have to tell them the truth. Don’t lie to them. Don’t make up stories. You need to be raw and there needs to facts. That’s the way it has to be, otherwise these kids won’t learn anything.”

The organization has several events throughout the year. Making their target the next generation.

“Reaching these kids is the only way we’re going to stop this thing in the first place. If we can stop them before they start, that’s what we need to do.”
