Justin Matthew Wolfe would have been turning 25 years old on June 11th of this year.
His life, however, was cut short at the age of 21 from a heroin overdose on December 19, 2012. His father, Gregg Wolfe, sponsors the (JFCS) Right In Our Backyard Program, developed to increase awareness in the South Jersey community, prevent addiction and addiction-related deaths, and keep our youth healthy and armed with the knowledge to make informed decisions. On June 9th, you can support this program at a very special fundraising event at the Mansion in Voorhees at 5:30 PM, in honor of Justin’s birthday. Get tickets by clicking here.
So far, the Right in Our Backyard program has reached over 700 teens and their parents. The program has also partnered with Camden County for expanded outreach, and has traveled from the Jersey shore to Baltimore in furtherance of our goal of saving lives. Tragically, the number of overdose deaths in New Jersey is more than triple the national rate, and “now [heroin overdose] eclipses homicide, suicide, car accidents and AIDS as a cause of death in the state.” (NJ.com article of 7/8/15).
Please join Gregg, JFCS, and friends, for Justin’s birthday benefit on Thursday, June 9th, at the Mansion in Voorhees, at 5:30pm. ALL PROCEEDS raised at Justin’s benefit will go into the
JFCS Right in Our Backyard Program, to enable us to continue to spread our message and save lives.
