Do you know someone suffering from drug addiction? Perhaps you, or someone you know, have lost a loved one to drug addiction. Freight Kitchen & Tap, one of the best restaurants in Woodstock, GA, is here to help put an end to this epidemic. On Wednesday February 21st, 10% of Freight sales will go to the Keely Foundation. Meet Michelle Neese, a Woodstock native and founder of the Keely Foundation:
Michelle Neese is the mother of Keely James Warren, whom she lost to a heroin overdose in October 2014. She started the foundation in memory of her son and to bring his story to light in order to help others. Neese remembers her son as an “all-American kid” who played football, baseball, and hockey since childhood. He was giving, caring, and had a smile on his face no matter what. She claims Keely always lived life to fullest regardless of his battles.

According to the Keely Foundation mission statement, “The mission of the Keely Foundation is to serve in our community in order to become a resource for opiate/heroin addiction awareness and education, and to be a resource-support system for the addict, the recovering addict, and their families. We will strive to remove the stigma associated with addicts and work to change the rehabilitation process to appropriately address the disease of opiate/heroin addiction.”
Do you want to be a huge part of this mission? Sign up for the “You Are Worth It” 5K run/walk hosted by the Keely Foundation. The event is Saturday March 10th at 8:00 AM at the Etowah River Park in Canton, GA. All donations will go toward the Keely Foundation. With the help of donations and Freight sales, one goal is to eventually build a recreation center in the Woodstock area for recovering addicts. This will allow them to interact and build coping skills in a sober setting. Thanks to the Keely Foundation, we can bring this community closer together by saving lives.
