Over 280 lbs excess prescription meds collected during Oct. 29 Drug Take Back Day

October 31, 2022

The West Michigan Drug Take Back effort on October 29 was a great success! With the help of our partners at Corewell Health, Priority Health, Kent County Health Department and the Grand Rapids Police Department, we collected 280+ pounds of unused/unwanted/expired prescription medications for safe and secure disposal. In addition, 57 Narcan kits were distributed to community members.

A huge THANK YOU to everyone who contributed to this effort to help keep our communities safe, including our volunteers Michele Colby, RN and Christopher Marshall, RN-CSM who spearheaded Pine Rest’s role in this effort!
