Community Wellness Event Highlights Local Resources

Posted: Updated:
BINGHAMTON, NY -

A day of promoting health and wellness at Tabernacle United Methodist Church provided resources for the community on Saturday.

Along with food and entertainment, the event had over 15 organizations promoting health and wellness including how to get out of abusive relationships, overcome addiction, and get tested for STIs. There was also a table for Narcan training. 

"We're just hoping it becomes a bit of a block party, but at the same time there's a lot of opportunities to learn about ways in which people can heal, get stronger, overcome addiction, and get out of bad situations," says Pastor Harold Wheat. 

For the organizations, it helps to make their assistance known. 

"These festivals are very important because many people don't know the resources available to them," says Voices Recovery Center Director Jeffrey Eaddy-EL.

The social justice committee at Tabernacle United Methodist Church were responsible for putting the event on.
