United Way of Delaware and Delaware 2-1-1 support Sussex County Health Coalition’s robust Drug Free Awareness Campaign “Delaware Goes Purple” This initiative (which is a collaboration with the Herren Project) will bring together caring partners who will take a united stance against Substance abuse in our state.
We are losing a Delawarean every 22 hours to overdose. Addiction is a disease that touches nearly every family in our state, regardless of what zip code you live in,” said Lt. Governor Bethany Hall-Long “I am proud of the work we are doing to support those battling addiction, as well as their families, with the services they need. Delaware Goes Purple is playing a key role in raising awareness and erasing the stigma around addiction. No one has to struggle alone”
Throughout the month of October United Way of Delaware and Delaware 2-1-1 will bring awareness to the Substance Abuse issues in our state by supporting Delaware Goes Purple. When Delawareans have access to the resources they need to thrive, the quality of life for everyone in our state improves.
UWDE, Delaware 2-1-1 and Delaware Goes Purple are Living United.
