Adams County Agencies Battling Against Substance Use and Overdose is hosting a community event to bring education and awareness of overdose to LIGHT. On the evening of August 31, you are invited to help raise awareness by attending the community event and lighting the town purple for International Overdose Awareness Day.

The event will be from approximately 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m at Washington Park. Here you will have the opportunity to:

· Create a community banner

· Receive Narcan education

· Listen to testimonials from survivors and loved ones

· Create memorial bags

· Light the town purple at 8:30 p.m.

If you are unable to attend and would still like to participate, various businesses will be providing purple glow sticks and tea lights so you may step outside with us on August 31 at 8:30 p.m. to light the town purple. Stay tuned for the list of participating businesses and for businesses/organizations wanting to change their outdoor lights to purple, please reach out to Darion Stephens at Darion.Stephens@pfh.org who will provide the bulbs.

Be sure to share your photos (i.e. family, friends, colleagues, home and businesses/organizations) lighting the town purple with #EndOverdose and #EndOverdoseAdamsCounty

On behalf of Clarity Healthcare and all community agencies providing care, we can’t wait to see you on August 31!

Overdose affects everyone. From grieving families to spontaneous first responders, the impacts of overdose are far-reaching and fall indiscriminately.
