Customers expect Ace Hardware stores to offer great customer service, and for having all the tools you need for your job. The owners of San Rafael’s locally-owned Marin Ace Hardware, will take Ace Helpful a step further on August 31, 2022, (International Overdose Awareness Day), when Marin Ace will give away the life-saving tool Narcan, which reverses overdoses from opioids, including from the deadly opiate fentanyl, and will provide education around overdose awareness and the current epidemic of fentanyl poisonings.
Starting at 5:30pm on Wednesday, August 31, store owner “Mom” Michelle will be assisted by the Spahr Center’s Harm Reduction team to offer free Naloxone/Narcan and Narcan training for Marin Ace customers and the Marin 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.
