On Tuesday, December 5, 2017, the Rotary Club of Newport News was hosted for lunch by Youth Challenge of Hampton Roads at their headquarters at 332 34th Street, Newport News. Youth Challenge of Hampton Roads’ vision statement is: “The Faith-based Solution for the Drug Epidemic”. Youth Challenge is committed to RESTORING lives and families that have been devastated by drug addiction and alcoholism, REBUILDING character based on integrity and Biblical moral values, and ESTABLISHING sober citizens back into the community who are physically, mentally, spiritually, and vocationally prepared to live a productive life.

RCNN President Tim Ryan presented a donation check from the Rotary Club of Newport News to Executive Director (and RCNN member) Travis Hall in recognition of the Youth Challenge mission and a second donation in recognition of the help Youth Challenge (YC) participants rendered for the 2017 Shrimpfest.
