This 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 6 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, fentanyl testing strips, and information to get drug addiction help. If you are interested in volunteering
to help make or deliver kits, please sign up here.

Recent Alliance Projects:
August 2022 Community Service Project- Vera Bradley Foundation
Alliance members helped to bow over 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!
June 2022 Community Support Project- Homebound Meals
Alliance members Morgan Gullet, Liz Hathaway, Tonya Hughes, Jae McGee, Dr. Justin McGee, Jennifer Bojrab & Lizzie Traylor volunteered to deliver meals to those in need through the Homebound Meals organization.
"Assisting our community to age in place, recuperate and enhance health through medically tailored meals delivered by dedicated volunteer drivers."
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!
