Events

We invite you to attend virtual and in-person events that increase awareness, educate and allow us to continue to grow and impact our community in a positive way.

April 20 - GIVE Roanoke

For 21 years, we have been supported by our community, allowing us to serve your needs. On April 20, we are honored to be a part of a collaborative effort to support all participating non-profits in the Roanoke Valley. Join us by donating at www.GiveRoanoke.org on April 20, from 12 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. We ask that you consider giving $21 in honor of our 21st year!

April 20 - Do you like Chipotle? Well - ChipotYAY!

You can have your dinner (yum!) and support the Prevention Council, too. If you go to Chipotle in person (4464 Electric Rd. location only), simply show the cashier this page and let them know your purchase is to benefit our fundraiser! If you order online, use Promo Code ADFQX9N on the Chipotle app or website (not valid for use through third-party apps like DoorDash). Either way - you must order on April 20 between the hours of 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. for your purchase to count toward our fundraiser! See you at Chipotle!

P.S. - not feelin' very Chipotle-ish but still want to support the Prevention Council? We got you. Visit https://bit.ly/pcrgiveroanoke ANYTIME on April 20 to invest in our people and impact lives for generations to come.

April 30 - Clean Our Your Medicine Cabinet

We all have that can of beans from 10 years ago hiding in the back of the pantry or that mystery Tupperware in the fridge no one can remember putting there - but have you checked the expiration date on your medications? Limit access and reduce misuse by safely disposing of unused prescriptions and expired medications. Visit TakeThemBack.org to find a drop box near you.

Thank you to the Western Virginia Water Authority, FRESH (Focus on Response and Education to Stay Healthy), RAYSAC (Roanoke Area Youth Substance Abuse Coalition), Blue Ridge Behavioral Healthcare and Piedmont Community Services for spreading the word!
