There are many families of alcoholics who only know despair. They are unaware that Al-Anon meetings are available to help them recover from the effects of the alcoholic’s drinking.
Receiving a copy of the Al-Anon Faces Alcoholism (AFA) magazine from a professional or picking up a copy from an information rack at a public library can open a new pathway to hope. The stories shared by members and the articles written by professionals give the families of alcoholics the encouragement they need to attend Al-Anon meetings.
Delivering AFA magazines to locations in your community gives each member the opportunity to carry the Al-Anon message of hope to others. Alcoholism takes its toll on the families and friends of alcoholics regardless of the season; it doesn’t take vacations or time off for the holidays.
