“Angels in Motion” Use Reclaimed Mural Cloth in Addiction Awareness Project

Lisa Kelley is one of the directors of Angels in Motion, a non-profit that started with one woman’s efforts to rescue her child from the disease of addiction. While searching the streets of Kensington for her son, Carol Rostucher saw that many other children and loved ones were suffering and lost as well. She began AIM as a way to help as many people living on the streets as possible.


Lisa, also the graphic designer for AIM, recently purchased some reclaimed mural cloth from the re to incorporate into a project she is working on with those affected by addiction. She gives people the opportunity to write hopes, dreams, prayers, wishes, and memories on strips of the cloth, and then knots and weaves them together. The woven panels are then hung from sticks she finds in Harrowgate Park in Kensington, just blocks from where she grew up.


Lisa is hoping to make 129 of these panels, one for each life lost daily in our country from a drug overdose. She will have a table at the 2016 ProAct Recovery Walk at Penn’s Landing on Sept 17th where people will have the opportunity to write on strips of the mural cloth.


We are happy to able to provide reclaimed materials saved from landfill for important community organizations like Angels in Motion to use in their projects. You can learn more about AIM by visiting their website.
