About the Event
April 21, 2023: Harm Reduction Circle Forced to Cancel Outreach Event Due to Insufficient Sponsorship
I'm sorry to inform you that the Harm Reduction Circle's outreach event, which was supposed to be held on April 22nd, had to be cancelled due to a lack of sponsors. Despite our efforts in the days leading up to the event to secure donations and contributions, we were unable to obtain enough food to fill the 200+ bags that we had planned to distribute to the unhoused and food-insecure individuals in Orange County.
We are deeply disappointed that we had to cancel this event, as it would have provided crucial support to the community we serve. We understand that food insecurity is a growing issue in Orange County, and we remain committed to our mission of reducing the harms associated with substance use.
We want to thank those who have already contributed to our cause and supported us in our efforts to provide life-saving resources to those in need. We are grateful for your support, and we hope to work with you in the future.
We also want to encourage others who are interested in supporting our outreach event and our mission to reach out to us directly. Your contributions can make a big difference in preventing food insecurity and providing life-saving resources in our local community.
We invite everyone to our next upcoming Meals on Onewheels Orange County event on Saturday, May 27th, 2023 from 10:00am to 1:30pm in Santa Ana, CA. https://tinyurl.com/OnewheelOCMay23 We believe that together, we can continue to make a positive impact in the lives of those we serve.
We remain committed to our mission and our work, and we hope to continue making a positive impact in the lives of those we serve. Thank you for your understanding, and we look forward to working with you in the future.
