National Fentanyl Preventions & Awareness Event 8/20


Facing Fentanyl, Southeast Valley Community Alliance (SVCA), and Alexander Neville Foundation (ANF) will host a public education event at Founder's Park, 22407 S Ellsworth Rd, Queen Creek, AZ 85142, from 12:00 PM–4:00 pm on Saturday August 20, 2022. 

National Illicit Fentanyl Prevention and Awareness Day is established in remembrance of the loved ones who lost their lives due to illicit fentanyl poisoning and to acknowledge the devastation this drug brings to hundreds of thousands of affected family members and friends.

Advocates and educators will use this day to raise awareness and educate the public about the dangers of fentanyl. This coordinated day of response from fentanyl awareness organizations from around the country will include participation by affected families who will share their lived experiences as part of the effort to warn and inform the general public, our youth, and the unsuspecting. Events are planned all over the nation.  

Along with public speakers, topics, and organizations listed below, volunteers will distribute educational resources, free Naloxone* for overdose treatment, and free Deterra* packs for medication disposal (* while supplies last).
