The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Community Connections is offering a drug disposal program at the Platte River Mall, 1000 South Dewey Street, on the second Saturday of each month, from 11:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. This program is an excellent way to dispose of all your prescriptions and over the counter medications that are expired or no longer needed. The medications are turned over to the Nebraska State Patrol who destroys them in an environmentally friendly manner. In partnership with Keep North Platte Lincoln County Beautiful, the bottles and other packaging are recycled. Volunteers are needed to help with this event.
Please call RSVP for more information.
The 2018 dates are as follows:
Saturday, February 17th; Saturday, March 17th; Saturday. April 2nd; Saturday, May 19th; Saturday, June 16th; Saturday, July 21st; Saturday, August 18th; Saturday, September 15th; Saturday, October 20th, Saturday November 17th; and Saturday, December 15th.
