The George Gramby Observance Committee is a nonprofit organization that plays an integral role in sustaining drug prevention by connecting those seeking recovery with highly capable inpatient and outpatient programs. This process that George started, refined over our 23-year history, promotes good matches between willing volunteers and and successful recovery stories, frequently over a long term.
George Gramby was the founder of a drug and alcohol referral center in Morristown, NJ. The center was known as Beginnings and was founded in 1984. Through Beginnings, George tirelessly worked within the community to help many people turn their lives around. In 1991 George became very ill. Recognizing the value of his contributions to society, members of the community decided to honor him with his own day, The George Gramby Day. Shortly thereafter, George passed away; however, his efforts live on through the early celebration of his life by way of an annual George Gramby Day event and also by the continued efforts of the George Gramby Observance Committee.
