Unity Barn Raisers, together with the Waldo County Sheriff’s Department and Waldo County Triad, will host a drug take-back event Friday, Oct. 30, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Unity Community Center, on 32 School St. This is an opportunity for people to turn in their unused or expired prescription drugs.

A study by the Patnership for a Drug-Free America shows that every day another 2,500 American children get high for the first time on drugs obtained most frequently from friends and family members, often coming from unused or expired prescription bottles at the home of their parents, grandparents or other relatives.

Organizers urge community members to participate in this healthcare program. For questions, contact Mary Leaming at 948-9005 or programs@unitybarnraisers.org.
