N&N: Lee PSR Celebrates Red Nose Day

Red Nose Day1This year was the inaugural Red Nose Day, a campaign dedicated to raising money for people living in poverty through creative and fun ways.

A group of people we support from Monarch’s Lee County Psychosocial Rehabilitation (PSR) program joined in to help people in their community by partnering with their local United Way in Sanford and holding a canned food drive. They also purchased red noses to go towards fundraising efforts.

Michelle Ibrahim, program manager for Lee/Harnett PSR, said working with Anri Flickinger, project coordinator for Lee County United Way, was great and staff were very welcoming towards the people we support during the project.

“The people we support wanted to be able to give back to those in their community and have fun while doing it,” she said. “Red Nose Day allowed us to accomplish both of those things and meet new people in the process.”
