PREVENTION 5 MEETING

2nd Monday of Each Month

12:00 –1:00 p.m.

Crestwood High School District Conference Room, Cresco

EVERYONE IS WELCOME


LATEST UPDATES

This Spring we will once again be working to educate the community on Iowa's Social Host Law. This law states that it is criminal offense to knowingly let minors drink alcohol in your home or on your property.

Underage drinking is especially harmful for youth and providing a space for underage drinking to take place in puts yourself and our youth at risk.

Please help us gather information about our corner of the state to best provide services to our local communities!

DISPOSAL SITE

The next National Drug Take-Back Event will be Saturday, April 27th from 10 AM until 2 AM. Sites for drop off are to be determined.

Anyone is welcome to utilize this box to dispose of unwanted, unused, or expired medications. No questions will be asked. Prevention 5 wants to get these unnecessary drugs out of people's homes so they can not fall into the hands of someone who may abuse them.

Permanent disposal sites in Howard County in Howard County include outside Cresco Family Pharmacy and the Lime Springs Medical Clinic.

YOUTH GROUPS

High school youth work on many initiatives to prevent and end alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use. Their efforts—such as Red Ribbon Week, the Great American Smokeout, Drug Facts Week, Through with Chew Week, and Kick Butts Day—promote awareness and education among their peers and community.
