Location: Wolfe Street Foundation

Little Rock, AR 72202
Name of Organisation: TRAE COTNER MEMORIAL FUND FOR CHILDREN AFFECTED BY DRUG OVERDOSE
It is recognized by Proclamation from the Governor of Arkansas for Purple Ribbon Week. We plan to have a Ribbon cutting as a launch for the first Purple Ribbon Week ever in our state. We want to share in awareness of Drug Overdose and offer our children a place to wear their purple ribbons proudly. We hope this will start the conversation for the children left behind to know they are not alone in their challenges after losing a parent AND bring awareness of the dangers of substance abuse for all children. We are also celebrating recovery as we wear our purple ribbons right in to the first of September. Media outlets will be present, we have shirts for sale and winners of our poster board contest-“Standing Together Against Drugs” promoted for the kids. We need to reach the smallest impacted by the largest epidemic, remember those we have lost and celebrate those in recovery.
