This event has become a yearly tradition at Freehold Raceway Mall and it is not hard to see why.

Coming up on Saturday, May 9th from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM is the 3rd Annual Paint The Mall Purple event in honor of Mental Health & Substance Abuse Day.

This event will take place at Freehold Raceway Mall and is co-hosted by the CFC Loud N Clear Foundation and this dynamic duo has made a point to shine a spotlight on the importance of mental health and its large involvement in the recovery process.

For those of you who are not familiar with the CFC Loud N Clear Foundation, they are an organization dedicated to succeeding at their mission to:

"...help individuals and families struggling with addiction find, maintain, and strengthen their recovery through peer-based support, certified intervention and professional treatment guidance, community education and naloxone trainings, educational presentations, sober living homes, sober social activities, and reintegration into society through participation in the all encompassing CFC Recovery Community."
