Join us as we come together to commemorate the lives of those lost to overdose. The event will offer local resources and support, followed by speakers and a candlelight vigil to share messages of remembrance, healing, and hope.

Naloxone will be provided at no cost during the event by local agencies.

Resource Fair begins at 5:30 pm, during which we will collect names to be read, hand out #ENDOVERDOSE shirts, the memorial wall will be open for additions, and local agencies will be providing resources and naloxone training.

The vigil portion will follow, from 7:00 – 8:00 pm.

We will be streaming the event on our Facebook page for those who wish to attend virtually.

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