Join REALTORS® on Saturday, April 6, 2019 in the Fight to Protect San Diego’s Families and Homes
Opioid abuse impacts more than 6 million American families and children.
As a part of our ongoing commitment to our region, the Ambassadors Foundation of the Greater San Diego Association of REALTORS® (SDAR) is partnering with the Safe Homes Coalition to take up the fight against the opioid epidemic that is threatening the safety of our homes and communities. What began in 2014 as a focused effort to remove prescription drugs from open houses has expanded this year to a region-wide effort to remove expired and unwanted prescription medications from homes throughout San Diego County. Please join us as we Farm For A Cause™ in our CommunityAmbassadors Prescription Drug Safety Awareness Program™.
Communities are the cornerstone of our county and the opioid crisis directly threatens their safety. Homes and families are at risk and we are committed to protecting them.
- Kevin M. Burke, JD, President, Greater San Diego Association of REALTORS®
Substance abuse is the root of so many challenges facing our society. Opioid addiction can happen in just a few days and it can happen to anyone.
- Hon Kristin Gaspar, Supervisor, County of San Diego
With countless numbers of prescription pills sitting in the medicine cabinets of homes across the country, we invite you to join us in the fight as we lead countywide precinct walks with government officials, program partners and other volunteers to inform families about the dangers of opioid abuse and how to safely dispose of expired, unwanted and unused prescription medicine in the household. On Saturday, April 6th, join us and walk your farms to provide families with the information and resources they need to conveniently dispose of prescription medication.*
*It’s important to note that REALTORS® and volunteers will only provide information will NOT be collecting ANY medication.
