Happy Thursday!
 
I hope this email finds you well.  Our world as we know it is a bit different at the moment but we want to use this opportunity to reflect upon what is good.  This is most important for children and young adults in our lives.  Stress, anxiety and substance misuse have all been concerns that we have been working on together at the Raymond Coalition For Youth.  As a community, our work is now more important than ever.  We need to lessen fear, encourage kindness and give people hope. 
 
RCFY has an up-to-date COVID-19 resource page for emotional support, mental health tips and ways to access substance misuse treatment and recovery supports at this difficult time.  Our partner organizations have all been providing information to help keep this updated and current and we thank them.  Please share this information in your networks.  There are many places providing very important information and we want to make sure people are aware of the most important “people support resources” that are available.     
 
We are also very excited to announce our RCFY Virtual Video Project that we hope you will participate in and share with your networks to encourage others as well.  It has two great purposes:

  1. To support our local restaurants that support RCFY throughout the year with donations.  This is an opportunity to encourage people to visit them and providing them business.  A family night of take-out might be just the thing to relieve a little stress, too!
     
  2. We are encouraging everyone to share who or what is helping you get through this ‘different’ time.  Who is the person who is there for you, and how?  What is the location or thing (dog, cat, park, trail) that brings you peace or lessens your stress?

Help us populate our social channels with these great ideas to inspire others.  We will have three winners of $25 gift certificates to a local restaurant each week and an overall additional $50 gift certificate at the end.  This is a way for us to thank Pizza By George, The Tuckaway, Cork N’ Keg GrillGordo’s and Nick’s Place for being there for the Raymond Coalition For Youth.  Please see our flyer below and visit our Virtual Video Project web page for more information, or contact Christine
 
Please remember to take care of yourself, take a deep breath, and do at least one small thing for yourself each day.  Remember how important it is to stick to a routine and know that this will pass and we will be back to normal, only our normal will be better than ever because people will appreciate the little things that sure do make a difference. 
 
Stay well and thank you,

Happy Spring!
 
We are in an uncertain time right now but it is important, now more than ever, to focus the little things in life that bring a smile to our face.  Today is the first day of spring, and we need to stop and think about all the happy, good feelings that come with that – longer days, more sunshine, flowers blooming, and warmer temperatures to get us all outside and enjoying some fresh air.
 
At this time we want to provide you with some updates.  The Raymond Coalition For Youth is your community resource connection to services and supports and this could not be more important at this time.  We have a resource page that is being updated with information from our amazing partners to help access important prevention resources, support for those seeking treatment, online recovery supports, and general information from our Raymond Town Government.
 
There is a lot of “different” happening in all of our lives.  It is most important to remember the children in our lives and how this can be affecting them.  Some will become quiet and others will act out.  This can also happen to adults who have never been through a situation that is out of their control.  Be patient, be understanding, be calm and be supportive.  Most importantly - stop, breathe and take care of yourself. You are not alone and we are all going to get through this together. 
 
RCFY staff are all working remotely but can still be reached via email.
 
I am excited to tell you that we have a new date for our 7th Annual Fundraising Gala, June 18th, and we look forward to gathering together – post virus, with Juston McKinney and our guests, all supporting the important work we do together at RCFY.

Please see some important information below.  Stay safe and smile, it’s finally SPRING!
