We work every day to prevent and reduce substance abuse in our community through proven strategies and strong partnerships. This event will help work with substance exposed children and our evidence based programs for school aged children and teens.

I'm going to rappel down the SunTrust Bank Building, in exchange for donations back to the amazing local non-profit organization, Drug Free Charlotte County.

EVENT DATE: Saturday, April 6, 2019 
LOCATION: Suntrust Bank Building - 
18501 Murdock Cir, Punta Gorda, FL

Organization Bio:

Founded in 2002, after a Florida Youth Substance Abuse survey found that Charlotte County had one of the highest rates of underage alcohol use in the state, Drug Free Charlotte County (DFCC) is dedicated to the prevention of substance abuse. Through the work of our community volunteers and dedicated staff, we have made great strides in reducing substance use among teens. Now the majority do not use, and we want to keep moving this fact forward! Our success is due to strong and effective partnerships, and the dedication of our community volunteers and staff.

Originally focused on sixth-twelfth grade, DFCC now addresses prevention from "cradle to aged".  Your support of this event will help fund our newly launched efforts to address substance exposed newborns and prevent the misuse of prescription drugs, as well as our successful Parent and Youth activities, like "Friday Night Done RIght". And, we need your help to expand our work in the elementary schools and continue specialized programs for at-risk teens referred by DJJ, Civil Citation, Teen Court and the schools. 

For more information, contact the Drug Free Charlotte County office at 941.255.0808 x3205 or email  prevention@drugfreecc.org.
