SYRACUSE — The second annual Soul Splash will be held on Thursday evening at the London Pool in Syracuse.
The event, which is organized by the Prayer Task Force, will feature free swimming, food, games, inflatables, snow cones, snacks and music. The Sanctified drama team will also perform.
The goal of the event is to give a positive environment away from the influence of drugs.
Service providers will also be on hand to speak with those in attendance about drug addiction and drug problems.
The Prayer Task Force has organized a series of events geared toward adults, teens and adolescents in the past. Thursday’s event is open to all ages.
Food will be provided at the event by the Syracuse Community Center.
The Prayer Task Force is dedicated to seeing a transformation in the community through prayer and making an effort to see the drug problem change one heart at a time.
The focus is on prayer, faith and stepping up to be responsible citizens by helping one another. It is also about connecting with resources that can help people dealing with addiction or the family of those who have loved ones with those struggles.
Education is a key to prevention, that along with the power of prayer is a “one, two” punch the task force hopes will bring real change in the war on drugs in our area.
