This is about our community. If we work together as a community, no one individual or organization has to shoulder this burden alone. If we don’t come together as a community, this epidemic will continue to roll right over us.Jamie Woods, Volunteer Peer Leader and President of the North Quabbin Recovery Center Advisory Board
