Maryville opioid recovery group holding fundraiser

As Seen On WATE

In the midst of the ongoing opioid crisis, an East Tennessee nonprofit is working to help those suffering from addiction recover.

True Purpose Ministries gives clothes, food and shelter to men just starting their path to recovery. This Thursday at 6 p.m., they’re hosting “The Power of Love and Laughter,” a fundraiser comedy show with traveling comedy group The Skit Guys, along with a short speech from Miss Tennessee USA, whose own family was touched by the epidemic.

The event is at Foothills Church off Lamar Alexander Parkway in Maryville. Tickets can be purchased here.
