Prestonsburg company hosts Thanksgiving parties

PRESTONSBURG, Ky. (WYMT) – A Prestonsburg health clinic dedicated to helping people recover from drug or alcohol addiction hosted a Thanksgiving giveaway for its clients and the community on Tuesday.

Frontier Behavioral Health has been a part of the Prestonsburg community since 2015. CEO Randy Hunter said his team has asked for opportunities to give back.

“We did a recovery walk in September,” he said. We are planning an event for Christmas. We just want to make sure that we give back to our communities every day. “

Home manager Chanel Music said she knows her recovering clients face a lot of pressure while on vacation.

“We hope that with these boxes it will give them a little push to want to cook dinner, invite the family and be a part of everything,” she said.

In the event that someone can’t make it in person, case managers like Courtney Gullett make door-to-door deliveries.

“It’s a community that has given me so much and it’s just a way to give back to those in need,” she said.

After the customers were served, everyone else in the community had a chance to stop by and purchase a box for their family.

Each kit included either turkey or ham, as well as stuffing, mashed potatoes, vegetables, a mix of gravy, and dessert kits.

“People need this,” Music said. “We have to help our communities. We have to help the people who struggle the most, which is what we are trying to do today.

In total, Frontier Behavioral Health distributed around 100 kits.

“I see the struggle,” Music added. “The struggle of families who want to do more but cannot do more. We just want to do it so that we can know we helped someone that day.

Frontier Behavioral Health officials tell us that with the price increases at the grocery store, it took smart shopping to put the boxes together on a budget, but it was possible, and of course well worth it.
