“We’re starting, we’re stepping up. We want to make a difference,” said Mary Panek, the acting national president for Church Women United.
Faith-based organizations, law makers and other leaders came together Thursday night as part of a national initiative to fight the on-going opioid epidemic. Church Women United hosted the event “Who is My Neighbor?” at the West Bay Beach Hotel in Traverse City.
Their goal is to join forces and find ways combat the opioid addiction issues across our nation.
“It’s often not talked about but everybody knows somebody,” said Panek.
