Narcan Initiative

This past year, in an effort to combat both fatal and non-fatal drug overdoses in Allen County, the Alliance has partnered with Capt. Kevin Hunter of the FWPD, Narcotics Division, to identify hot spots around Fort Wayne that have a need for Narcan boxes. Through grants obtained by Overdose Lifeline in Indianapolis, the Alliance orders kits and refills these boxes on a weekly basis. There are currently 9 boxes (10-12 kits per box) and one vending machine (350 kits) around the city, that we oversee. These free kits contain a nasal Narcan dose and information to get drug addiction help. If you are interested in volunteering

to help make or deliver kits, please contact Tonya Hughes here.

Recent Alliance Projects:

April 2024 Community Service Project- Hope's Harbor

Alliance members met at the Hope's Harbor Home on the Lutheran Hospital campus to prepare a home-cooked meal for the guests that stay at the facility. Hope's Harbor provides lodging and accommodations for the parents and families of critically ill children during their hospitalizations. There is also a home on the Dupont Hospital campus. We are honored to help this organization that offers a safe harbor for families in their time of need.

September 2023 Community Service Project- Vera Bradley Foundation

Alliance members helped to set up 500 packages for the Vera Bradley Classic Foundation Fundraiser for Breast Cancer.  Boxes & Bows is a popular feature at the event where mystery Vera Bradley items valued at $30 and over are purchased for $25 each to raise funds for breast cancer research. Great cause and great fun with friends!



 

We would like to thank all of our members for their continued support.

Please know that all we do as an organization would not be possible without you!
