PD Medican Chest 2018 results

 

We took in 813 lbs of prescription medication off the street and out of homes in 2018! Thank you to all of our residents that were vigilant in aiding our efforts to crush the opioid epidemic and keep unwanted prescription meds out of the hands of those they do not belong to.

Can’t wait to see how much we take in for 2019!
