Project Boon Partners with Inland Valley Recovery Services (IVRS) To Boost Community Outreach

The Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons are among us, and that means that local non-profit Project Boon is once again teaming up with San Bernardino’s Inland Valley Recovery Services to host holiday events. For the second straight year, Project Boon will support these existing events, helping IVRS expand their reach to underserved communities and those in recovery, by hosting holiday meals along with health and wellness services for attendees.

In 2015, when IVRS was running their holiday event on their own, they were able to serve 200 of the San Bernardino area’s most needy individuals. Last year, with Project Boon’s assistance and resources, that number jumped to serving 600 residents. This year, both IVRS and Project Boon are expecting even more attendees at both the Thanksgiving and Christmas events, being held on November 15th and December 20th from 12-4pm at the IVRS San Bernardino facility, 939 N. D St San Bernardino, CA.

In addition to serving up traditional, authentic holiday meals and a family-like environment to those who might not otherwise have them, the IVRS holiday events will provide:

  • Health and resource vendors
  • A clothing closet for men, women and children
  • Games and crafts for kids
  • Raffle prizes
  • A visit from Santa Claus himself at the Christmas event

Additionally, IVRS and Project Boon have arranged for free OmniTrans passes, San Bernardino County’s Public Transit System, so that all interested attendees have a way of making it to and from the event. Interested attendees who need OmniTrans passes can contact Project Boon or IVRS to arrange to receive these passes.

Committed to helping those in need, especially people who are trying to better themselves or others, Project Boon’s partnership with IVRS is its effort to make a difference in the Inland Empire recovery community.
