Making A Difference One Child At A Time

FACT: Drugs Are In Our Community

Growing up in Massapequa we didn’t see the level of drug use in our community that we see today. We have young children with heavy addictions and sadly we are seeing more and more overdose victims and one too many deaths. The Kiwanis of Massapequa has seen enough and we feel we need to help our community. We have developed an anti drug initiative and have the permission of the Massapequa superintendent to distribute the components to the parents and children of the Massapequa School district. The initial program will consist of a booklet with great preventative and consultative information, a phone app, phone number (for 24/7 access to a counselor) and poster campaign. It is with great enthusiasm that we have the opportunity to share the ability to help children in our community with you. You have an opportunity to be part of our commitment to building and preserving a healthy vital community. Unfortunately, we cannot do this alone; we need the generous and responsible financial support of other members of our community. Please see the sponsor levels below and partner with us to help save our children from the horrific onslaught of drug addiction in our town. The children of the Massapequa’s will be forever in your debt.
