CRESTVIEW — Exodos Ministries now has an extra $15,000 that can help staffers minister to men recovering from chemical addictions.  

Residents donated the money Monday during the sixth annual benefit dinner and auction at Woodlawn Baptist Church. More than 200 people attended the event, which allowed more people to learn about Exodos' substance abuse rehabilitation services, organizers said.

"This is always a great opportunity to educate people about what we do," Kyra Crowson, Exodos admissions director, said.

Kenneth Cadenhead, Exodos Thrift Store manager, said area churches and individuals' support is crucial to the ministry.

Area churches monthly contribute between $800 and $1,000; individuals donate between $1200 and $1500, he said.

The rehabilitation ministry also raises funds through proceeds from the North Ferdon Boulevard thrift store.

Additional income will particularly be beneficial when the ministry moves to Baker. Cadenhead said the move would allow the ministry to help additional residents.
