Thanks to Manatee County Fire Commission for contribution to drug overdose prevention

The Manatee County Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition wishes to thank the Manatee County Fire Commissioners' Association for their generous donation of $500.

This contribution will allow for a greater distribution of Your Life Matters cards to individuals who experience an overdose in Manatee County.

The card was developed by local Firefighter Michael Dunn of the Cedar Hammock Fire District and lists local resources to assist those struggling with substance abuse.

When individuals care enough to go above and beyond, it fosters community engagement. This in turn creates partnerships that ultimately lead to the changes we want to see in our community.

We are so thankful for this donation and hope it helps to save even just one life in our beautiful county!
