Customers expect Ace Hardware stores to offer great customer service, and for having all the tools you need for your job. The owners of SF’s landmark Standard 5&10 Ace in Laurel Village, will take Ace Helpful a step further on August 21, 2022, when Standard 5&10 Ace will give away the life-saving tool Narcan, which reverses overdoses from opioids, including from the opiate fentanyl, and will provide education around overdose awareness and the current epidemic of fentanyl deaths.
From 3:30-4:30pm on Sunday 8/21/22, store owner “Mom” Michelle will be assisted by Ali from Glide Memorial’s Harm Reduction department to offer free Naloxone/Narcan and Narcan training for Standard 5&10 Ace customers and the SF community. They will also discuss the prevalence of Fentanyl in at least 2 out of 5 street pills, per the DEA’s latest findings, and will be available to answer any questions around Fentanyl Awareness and Overdose Prevention. For more information, visit the store’s website or Facebook page.

The overdose epidemic is everyone's problem, but it's being left to a small group to step up.
