A local non-profit organization has received national recognition for the impact it has made.
The Community Action Network for Drug-free Lifestyle Empowerment or CANDLE Incorporated has been honored with the 2017 Top-Rated Non-Profit Award for the 5th year in a row by GreatNonprofits. CANDLE is responsible for starting the Reality Tour Drug Prevention Program for parents and kids.
This award is based on positive reviews written by volunteers, donors, and participants in the program as well as the transparency of the organization.
CANDLE’s mission is to close the gap in prevention services by reaching out to families in the general public to educate the parent and child together. CANDLE’s research-based Reality Tour has strong attendance locally as well as in other Pennsylvania communities, across six other states, and Canada.
