Thank you for your generosity and help with our 2017 DAY OF HOPE WALK. We are always blessed by each and every one of you!
A couple ways we reach out to people:
We supply Comfort Care Baskets to families in our communities who have lost a loved one to an overdose or suicide. It provides them with wonderful resources and comfort items. Contact us if you know of a family in Wayne or surrounding counties (Ohio) who could be blessed by a basket.
We are providing Medication Deactivation Pouches to help alleviate possible overdose or addiction. Get rid of you old medications in a safe and environmentally friendly way before they end up in the wrong hands.
We also participate and host various trainings and events. Contact us to do one for your group. A few we have done in the past are:
Holiday Survival (for those who have lost someone)
Multiple Rallies in Wayne, Summit, and Stark Counties
