Calendar Alert: Heroin Awareness Community Meeting

8.2.2013 Kacie's Cause

23-year old Kacie Rumsford over dosed on heroin she bought near her home in Kennett Square just six months ago in March.

Kacie’s father, Andy Rumsford, is organizing this event this morning to warn residents about the dangers of heroin, a drug that killed 37,000 Americans last year and continues to make an alarming comeback in small cities and towns, and provide information of where parents can get help if they suspect their child is using drugs including heroin.
