We had a very busy December giving many presentations in the community as well as at many local High Schools. We distributed 45 Narcan Kits and gave 5 Overdose Rescue Trainings and presentations. Our Youth Ambassadors also came together to build around 400 overdose rescue kits!
The Run for Education is a tradition in the San Ramon Valley spanning 39 years and is the primary fundraising activity for the San Ramon Valley Education Foundation (SRVEF), a non-profit organization that supports and promotes education in partnership with the San Ramon Valley Unified School District. The only event in the San Ramon Valley that includes participants, volunteers and spectators from all 36 San Ramon Valley Unified School District (SRVUSD) schools, representing the communities of Alamo, Danville and San Ramon, the Run for Education is also the largest run that supports education in Northern California.
Thank you to our volunteers for tabling and making this event possible!
Thank you to everyone who attended our International Overdose Awareness Day Event on 8/27 at Chichibu Park in Antioch. Thank you to our providers and community members for helping us create a space for the community to remember loved ones lost to overdose.
CCC MEDS and the NCAPDA partnered with ACE Hardware stores in East Contra Costa County to provide FREE overdose rescue training and fentanyl education at their stores in Oakley, Antioch and Pittsburg. We distributed a total of 40 Narcan rescue kits to employees and community members that stopped by. Thank you to Michelle Leopold, owner of the 3 Ace Hardware stores, for hosting us for this important and life-saving outreach event!
