Perdue Farms, through a $30,000 Franklin P. and Arthur W. Perdue Foundation grant, is continuing its partnership with the Recovery Resource Center (RRC) in its mission to facilitate and support people on their journey to recovery from addiction.

Each week, the Recovery Resource Center provides a safe haven and meeting place for approximately 1,000 people who participate in various support programs and educational workshop while seeking recovery from alcoholism, drug addiction, and any other chemical-use disorder.

“The organization is such a blessing to our community, said Kim Nechay, executive director of the Franklin P. and Arthur W. Perdue Foundation.  “Sadly, addiction is not something that can be cured.  But the staff and programs at RRC make recovery manageable for their clients and we know that makes all the difference in their ability to work and enjoy their families.  We are honored to help them in their mission to aid those in need of their services.”

The Recovery Resource Center was established in 1987 at the Salisbury Substance Abuse Community Center by individuals who were in recovery themselves.  The Center’s recovery support programs are provided at no cost to any person seeking support.  The Center is located in Salisbury, Maryland.

The Franklin P. and Arthur W. Perdue Foundation, the charitable giving arm of Perdue Farms, was established in 1957 by company founder Arthur W. Perdue and is funded through the estates of Arthur W. Perdue and Frank Perdue.
