The Recovery Resource Center was recently presented with a $5,000 gift by Col. Bob Cook (ret.) In November, Cook was awarded The Frank H. Morris Humanitarian Award for his commitment to the community and philanthropy by the Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore. In honor of the award, the Community Foundation committed $1,500 to the charity of Col. Cook’s choice.
Col. Cook directed the award to The Recovery Resource Center, matching the $1,500 award with a gift of his own along with contributions from friends and family for a total gift of $5,000. The Recovery Resource Center’s mission is to facilitate and support people on the journey to recovery and the organization currently hosts over 40 meetings, is sponsored by seven 12-Step Fellowships, and serves approximately 1,000 people per week.
