On Saturday Vista and Horizon Middle School students from the Whatcom Prevention Coalition Natural High Club spent the morning handing out flyers and reminding people of the importance of prompt and proper disposal of expired prescription medications as well as illegal narcotics.
The event was supported by the Whatcom County Health Department, Whatcom Family and Community Network, Ferndale School District, Haggen and the Ferndale Police Department.
This is a health and safety issue for our children and youth. Please dispose of your expired medications today to reduce the likelihood of them falling into the hands of teenagers or accidently being ingested by a young child.
To find the nearest location to you for dropping off your expired prescriptions and controlled substances visit www.TakeBackYourMeds.org.
Thanks Natural High Club students for taking such good care of our community and your fellow students!
