Wicomico will be Going Purple in September, which is National Recovery Month. Wicomico Goes Purple, coordinated by a committee of the Wicomico County Opioid Intervention Team, strives to initiate conversations about the dangers of substance misuse and abuse and encourages our community to take a stand. The Wicomico Goes Purple campaign focuses on prevention, treatment, and recovery resources available throughout our community and emphasizes the important role that law enforcement plays in combating this epidemic.
Wicomico Goes Purple has a goal of promoting conversations about substance misuse which includes prescription medications. You and your community can get involved by decorating your homes, storefronts and businesses. For participation ideas, resources and additional information, please visit Facebook@WicomicoGoesPurple or website wicomicogoespurple.com.
The Wicomico Goes Purple campaign will kick off at the Arthur W. Perdue Stadium in Salisbury on Friday, September 4, 2020 at 7:00 pm. A Delmarva Shorebirds movie night event will follow with a family friendly movie. Please bring a non-perishable food item to support the Wicomico Goes Purple food drive or drop off to one of the below locations.
