This fall’s Prescription Drug Round Up is scheduled for Saturday, October 21st. As you may know, this event is primarily volunteer-driven, and so the Reno Police Department is once again requesting help to make this great event happen!
The RPD, Sparks Police Department and Washoe County Sheriff’s Office are in need of general public volunteers to serve as “greeters” at the event, as well as pharmacists/pharmacy techs to assist with counting and logging the medications that are turned in. The event will take place from 10 am – 2 pm, and volunteers are needed at their sites at 9:30 am. Please be aware that this event takes place outside in front of the store, so dress accordingly for the weather!
In order to track which sites are still in need of help, RPD requires that all volunteers RSVP directly to Chelsey at email@example.com. Chelsey will accommodate first choice of location whenever possible, however as some sites fill up she will need to request that you move to another site that still needs help.
To those of you who have helped with this event in the past – some of you for many years – we cannot thank you enough. Without you, we would not be able to continue meeting this need in our community! Please contact me to RSVP for the event, or with any questions. Feel free to distribute to any friends or colleagues who may be able to help, especially pharmacy personnel.
