Boone County needs volunteers to distribute door hangers Sat, raise awareness for Heroin Help Line

The Boone County Sheriff’s Office and the Judge/Executive’s Office are working to sign up volunteers to distribute literature in the fight against heroin in Boone County.

The event will take place this Saturday, July 15. The day will start at the Sheriff’s Department located at 3000 Conrad Lane in Burlington with volunteers arriving between 8 a.m. and 9 a.m.

Volunteers will walk door-to-door distributing door hangers that highlight the Northern Kentucky addiction help line along with information to aid in identifying the signs of addiction along with resources for getting help.  Plans are to focus on the Burlington and Hebron areas July 15, followed by other areas of the county on subsequent dates.

Boone County Sheriff Michael Helmig said, “If we expect to have a real impact on the heroin problem in Boone County it’s going to take us working together as a community; a team to educate with our pamphlets, intervene with our Quick Response Team, and to put the offenders who bring this poison behind bars.”

Volunteers are critical to this effort so anyone who can spare some time is asked to register to ensure a well-planned and organized event.  Anyone, or any group, who wishes to participate can provide a count of people with names, email addresses to Chris Courtney from the Judge/Executive’s Office at ccourtney@boonecountyky.org.
