Ohio CAN Group Fighting Addiction With “Blessing Bags”

Ohio CAN (Change Addiction Now), a nonprofit group dedicated the helping those with addiction and substance abuse disorders, will issue “blessing bags” in Sandusky County in December. Next months marks the third annual distribution of such blessing bags.

This week, Sandusky County Ohio CAN coordinator Dawn Bova spoke at an addiction resources awareness meeting at Fremont’s city council chambers. She said the organization was going to set up collection boxes at multiple locations in Sandusky County, in effort to help those suffering from addiction. Moreover, those who are addicts in the early stages of recovery, and those who are family members of addicts.

Donated items in collection boxes will be placed in backpacks and issued throughout the county. Collection boxes will be set up next week, and the blessing bags issued on December 10th.

Goods to be collected include winter items such as socks, gloves, hats, and blankets, as well as toiletries and food. Along with these items in the bag will be placed resource materials with information on local addiction recovery and support groups.

Ohio CAN was founded by 10 mothers in Ohio who had children fighting addiction. The group has now grown into a national organization with 2,800 members.

There are also Change Addiction Now chapters in multiple states, including the Ohio area, such Michigan, Indiana, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia.
