Queen Anne’s Will “Go Purple” for Substance Abuse Awareness

DocumentThe Queen Anne’s County Drug-Free Coalition, in partnership with the Queen Anne’s County Commissioners, the Queen Anne’s County Sheriff’s Office, and other stakeholders in September will sponsor “QAC Goes Purple” — an annual campaign to raise awareness about substance abuse.

The Queen Anne’s County Drug-Free Coalition (DFC) — in partnership with local students, volunteers, and County leaders — will distribute educational materials and public service announcements through social media and local media outlets. The DFC’s campaign will raise awareness about alcohol, marijuana, tobacco and vaping, and opioids.

According to a County press release:

This year Queen Anne’s County Drug-Free Coalition asks that you show your support by illuminating your home or business with purple lights during the Month of September.

With schools closed for the first semester and activities being cancelled it is more important than ever to continue our substance use prevention. Our school system is also a partner and will be helping to send out “Staying Drug Free” messages to our students.
