KidCents Program Makes an Impact on Greenbelt, MD, Public Safety

KidCents Program Makes an Impact on Greenbelt, MD, Public Safety

“I want to express a very sincere thank you to you and everyone at Rite Aid for this wonderful KidCents program.  This is an extremely important program and I am confident our community will benefit from participating in the program.  Due to the high rate of prescription drug abuse among teens, the Greenbelt Public Safety Advisory Committee (PSAC) set a goal to have a prescription drug drop box installed within our city.  The KidCents program could not have come at a more appropriate time for our project.  Rite Aid's KidCents program will be instrumental in helping us to achieve our goal of instituting projects within the community that will assist in decreasing the rate of drug abuse especially among teens.  

I also want to thank you and Rite Aid for covering the cost of creating and adding the extra graphic for the Greenbelt Public Safety Advisory Committee.  This was very generous. Again, thank you.  It has been a pleasure working with you.”

Milo, ME, Police Department Receives Medication Collection Container from Rite Aid

On Friday, we received this collection container from Rite Aid. It was given to us as part of their KidsCents program, which, in part, focuses on helping to keep kids out of prescription medications. It's another tool we'll employ to help in properly disposing of unused or expired medications.
It's located inside the Town Hall lobby and you can use it if we aren't inside the PD. We'll collect your unused or expired medication every day, but the collection container is also there for you to use.

Once in place, every police department in Onondaga County will have a med box in its community for the public to dispose of unwanted, outdated medicine during regular business hours. Since inception, the program has safely collected and disposed of over 2,000 pounds of both prescription and over-the-counter medication.
