Helping people. Just as important as helping brands.
Marketicity team plays important role in Monroe County Coalition for Drug Free Communities.
Marketicity is proud to be represented on the executive board for the Monroe County Coalition for Drug-Free Communities initiative. Gary Most, President of Marketicity llc, is serving with other health, education and business professionals as well as concerned citizens and civic leaders.
“Marketicity has really helped brand our efforts.” – Bill Rebholz.
The objective of the group is to increase awareness regarding the serious issues of alcohol, marijuana, prescription drug and heroin abuse in Monroe County. Statistics confirm that this is a growing issue, not only nationally, but right here in our communities. Fellow executive board member and Monroe County Coroner, Vicki Koerber, confirms that marijuana, prescription drug and heroin abuse is happening right here in our own backyard, and it is a growing concern with area youth and adults alike.
The coalition is working to gain awareness and increase knowledge for signs of abuse, treatment options and support networks available for those experiencing problems or for family members and friends of those in need. 2016 marks the third year the coalition has been at work. The group has been instrumental in supporting recent public Drug Abuse Awareness Forums and is planning its Spring 2016 forum for Wednesday, March 9th. “These forums have proven to spike awareness and bringing together interested parties and available resources’ stated Board President and local business professional Bill Rebholz.
Those interested in learning more are welcome to attend the coalition meeting the first Monday of each month at the YMCA Monroe County-HTC Center at 4:00 p.m. Join us in making a difference.
