Seamen’s Bank Long Point Charitable Foundation is proud to announce a $15,000 donation to Pause A While Inc. This commitment will help purchase its current facility and adjacent lot at 26 Giddiah Hill Road, Orleans MA.
The Pause is a facility dedicated to hosting 12-step recovery meetings. These meetings are the long-term treatment component for alcoholism and drug addiction. Two hundred people per day attend meetings at the Pause to achieve and maintain their sobriety. 12-step meetings have been held at the current location for nearly 20 years. The Pause also provides space for meetings supporting the loved ones and families of those who are suffering from addiction and/or alcoholism. These include meetings to support teenage children with one or both parents who are alcoholic and/or addicted.
Lori Meads, President and CEO of Seamen’s Bank, says, “Daily access to 12-Step recovery meetings has proven beneficial in helping people stay clean and sober. Families on Cape Cod
and the Cape Community as a whole, have suffered terribly with substance abuse. As a leading community financial institution, we strongly support causes which have a direct impact on
helping individuals and their families live healthy and fulfilling lives.“
