WHO:  Bellmore-Merrick CHSD, Community Parent Center, Senator John Brooks, Assemblyman David McDonough, Presiding Officer - Legislator Norma Gonsalves, Legislator Steve Rhoads, Legislator Laura Curran, Nassau County Police Department, Community Action for Social Justice and the Bellmore, North Bellmore, Merrick and North Merrick Elementary School districts

WHAT:  Drug Take Back Day

WHEN:  Saturday, October 28, 2017 - 10:00am to 1:00pm

WHERE:  Grand Avenue Middle School, 2301 Grand Avenue, Bellmore, NY

WHY:  To combat abuse and misuse of prescription medications by safely disposing unwanted and expired medications.  The drug take back program provides a safe, convenient, and responsible way to dispose of prescription drugs, while also educating the community about the potential for abuse of medications.  Additionally, the event helps the environment by discouraging people from using the typical disposal method, flushing unused pills or dumping them in the solid waste stream. This keeps them out of the drinking water system and landfills. 

We hope you will join us to fight Prescription Drug Abuse and Misuse.  Let’s work together to combat this issue. Spread the word about the Drug Take Back Day with relatives, neighbors and friends.  The more educated we become, the better we can protect our children.

If you have any questions, feel free to call Eric Caballero-992-1048 or Wendy Tepfer-992-1086.
