Last year 23,000 of you celebrated RECOVERY at Penn's Landing
Let's top that this year!
We know we can do it with your help!
YOU Can Make a Difference!
400 volunteers each year feel the pride of having helped the recovery community and contributed to the success of PRO-ACT Recovery Walks!
One of the better-known benefits of volunteering is the impact on the community. It allows you to connect to yours and make it a better place. Even helping out with the smallest tasks can make a real difference to the lives of people and organizations in need. And volunteering is a two-way street: It can benefit you and your family as much as the cause you choose to help. Dedicating your time as a volunteer helps you make new friends, expand your network, and boost your social skills.You have your choice NOW of a wide selection of volunteer opportunities!
