The Beverly Grainger Memorial Fund will be used to support Shalom House Ministries, a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center in Anderson County. This program like many others in the Upstate are working to help these addicts to help ultimately cut down on the rising numbers of addiction.
Addiction is a problem that costs billions of dollars and thousands of lives every year.
In Anderson County, one man is making a donation to a recovery center in his mother’s name because he knows all too well the impacts addiction has on families. Zach Riddley lost his mother Beverly in September after she battled alcoholism for his whole life.
“For the last couple years of my mothers life she struggled with liver disease brought on by her addiction and she wanted to make a commitment and give back to all types of ministries who had given her and her friends support,” Riddley said.
