RHONDA SPECE MEDICAL BILL COVERAGE FUNDRAISER

Rhonda Spece, is currently in the hospital with a blockage. Over the last few years she's been in and out of the hospital for similar reasons leading to having surgery and being out of work. Rhonda and her family are still paying medical bills from her previous times in the hospital and we're not sure how long she's going to be in the hospital this time and also out of work. She is one that always gives and ask for nothing in return.

Please join us February 29 from 6-8pm for A Night for HOPE, a community illicit drug forum sponsored by the La Crosse County Heroin and Other Illicit Drug Task Force, La Crosse County Prevention Network and Addiction Medical Solutions. 

A Family’s Journey from Addiction to Recovery. Your Choice started with one family who lived through the devastation of drugs and alcohol. Their son Tyler struggled with drugs and alcohol for 11 years until he decided it was time to get help. Once he completed treatment in 2008, the family came together and decided they wanted to educate youth and families about drugs and alcohol so that other families wouldn’t have to experience what they lived through.
Chris Eberlein, MD., Co-chair of the La Crosse County Heroin and Other Illicit Drug Task Force, and from Gundersen Health Systems stated, “Many people do not understand why or how other people become addicted to drugs. We do know that drug addiction can be successfully treated to help people stop abusing drugs and lead productive lives.” A local survey, COMPASS NOW 2015 showed that illegal drug use was the top community concern.
There will also be available resources in the community, panelists on treatment, addiction, law enforcement, medical, current efforts in your community, and more! Everyone is welcome and the event is free. Community members such as parents, family members, caregivers, health professionals, business leaders, mental health providers, counselors, and others are encouraged to attend. Staff will be available starting at 5pm before the event for questions and concerns about counseling, treatment and resources.
LOCATION:
Waterfront – Cargill Center located at 328 Front Street South in La Crosse, Wisconsin.
REGISTRATION or QUESTIONS:
Please contact Al Bliss, Coordinator of the La Crosse County Heroin and Other Illicit Drug Task Force at 608 789-4820 or email This email address is being protected from spambots.

GOTHAM KNIGHT SERVICE DOG TRAINING DONATION

Zcare is honored to donate to Gotham's service training so he can continue to help Army Veteran Walter live well. Thanks to our awesome listeners and our partners at Days Inn La Crosse Conference Center, we were able to donate $500 to Paws 4 Independence for Gotham's training. So glad we had a fabulous bidder in the Macklemore Zcare auction so we can help these great people!

 

                 

Here's a little more background on these great folks:

Walter served our country in the US Army and was in Iraq from 2007-2009. He unfortunately returned disabled from severe PTSD and a Traumatic Brain Injury which triggers sudden and intense fear and anger. Luckily, he found Paws 4 Independence in Caledonia, MN that helps veterans and other people with varying disabilities TRAIN their own service dogs. Walter and his wife enrolled their amazing Rottie, Gotham Knight in service training since he was a puppy but they need your help to continue training him.

EMPTY BOWLS FEBRUARY 13

Purchase a beautiful bowl handmade by Generous Earth Pottery for $15 and sample soups and bread from area restaurants. All proceeds to benefit The Hunger Task Force

CLICK HERE FOR THE FACEBOOK EVENT!

The Hunger Task Force of La Crosse provides Cooking Matters at the Store tours for clients in its food pantry network.

Cooking Matters at the Store helps families shop for and cook healthy meals on a budget as part of Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign. The next tour will take place on Tuesday, February 9, 2016 at 7:00pm at the Festival Foods Copeland Ave. store.

Says Shelly Fortner, Executive Director of the Hunger Task Force, “Families on a budget say that it is difficult to shop healthy when you are stressed with little time and even less money. This curriculum helps people choose healthier foods with their dollars and then demonstrates how easy they can be to prepare.”

Cooking Matters is a free program, working in partnership with our local Festival Foods stores. Each month in 2016, The Hunger Task Force will invite a partner food pantry or meal site to recruit clients, although anyone who is interested may sign up. Emily Schwartz, Festival dietitian, along with other tour guides will present an interactive tour through the grocery store.

The program has four main components and participants will learn how to:

1) Read food labels
2) Compare unit prices
3) Find whole grain foods
4) Identify three ways to purchase produce

The tour ends with a $10 Challenge. Participants use the skills they’ve just learned to choose and purchase a healthy meal for a family of four for under $10. Thanks to a generous donation of gift cards from Festival Foods Dietitian Team, they will take these groceries home along with a booklet with recipes and shopping tips, and a reusable grocery bag.
To find out more about Cooking Matters at the Store, or participate in a tour, visit our website at www.lacrossehtf.org or contact us at 608-793-1002. Tour space is limited, so pre-registration is requested.
