Empty Shoes to End Overdose:

Their names will be read aloud and a bell will be rung in their honor. Shoes may be collected following the event or can be donated to people seeking recovery from Substance Use Disorder.
International Overdose Awareness Day is an opportunity to remember loved ones lost to overdose. The tragedy of overdose death is preventable and more must be done to save lives!
