Thank you so much for your decision to donate to P.E.A.R.L. and support our efforts to help the Benton County Drug Court and Veterans Court.
As you know, the causes of addiction – and the barriers to recovery – are unique for every individual, and donations like yours are what allow us to continue our mission. Our goal is to provide immediate and ongoing relief and assistance to those individuals who are working to recover from addiction and re-enter their community as clean, contributing members. When recovering addicts are given the help they need instead of feeling stigmatized or neglected by their community, they are given an invaluable resource in their recovery.
Individuals who participate in programs that offer treatment instead of incarceration, like the Benton County Drug Court Program, are twice as likely to remain clean and arrest-free than they would if they were imprisoned for the offense. And, studies have shown that communities save up to $12 for every $1 invested in Drug Court programs, stemming from reduced emergency room visits, medical care, foster care, property loss, and fewer individuals imprisoned on minor drug charges.
Personal donations like yours go a long way in supporting the Benton County Drug Court and Veterans Court. And, your willingness to give your hard-earned resources to help others in your community has done much more than provide needed funding. You have joined a movement to build Bentonville and Northwest Arkansas through compassionate programs that treat addiction instead of punishing the addict. You have banded together with others in the community to show individuals who are trying to recover that we see them, support them, and believe in them. With your involvement, we can help our Drug Court and Veterans Court get the funding they need, and we can foster an even stronger, more vibrant and hopeful community.

We want to hear from you. How are we doing? You can send us a few thoughts about our work or share your own recovery story. We also respect your privacy, and we will only post your name with your permission. Get started…
When you connect with an organization, you want to share their message. But, linking to a website can feel so impersonal. Peer-to-peer (p2p) sharing allows you to create your own P.E.A.R.L. donation page that you can share quickly and easily through Facebook, Twitter and other social media platforms. It doesn’t take long to start the process, and we try to approve all new donation pages within one business day.
If you want to become more involved with P.E.A.R.L., or if you would like more information about our organization and what we do, you are always welcome to send us an email or give us a call.
