Drive-Thru Medicine Disposal Pouches

Hub City Outreach Center & The City of Lubbock hosted a Medicine Disposal Pouch Drive-Thru Giveaway to temporarily replace the yearly Medicine Takeback Event!
Disposal Pouches were picked up over a two day period-
Thursday, May 21, 2020 at Monterey High School
Friday, May 22, 2020 at Coronado High School
Over the two day event a total of 441 Deterra Pouches were given to the Lubbock Community! This was an amazing turn out! 
If you're interested in hosting a Medicine Take-back Event at your site, please reach out to us. We will be hosting more events so we are looking for interested sites!

In 2017, more than 6 million Americans misused prescription drugs, and 2,500 American kids abuse prescription drugs for the first time every day.

Each year, the Drug Enforcement Agency hosts a Take Back Day, and in 2019 they recovered 882,919 pounds of unused prescription medication. This year, that event has been indefinitely delayed, and these pouch giveaway days seek to meet that need.

How is self-quarantine going?

We understand this is a stressful time that we are all trying to navigate in different circumstances.
With that being said, we are doing a COVID-19 Items Drive!!

Please read below for ALL details:
We are requesting male and female hygiene products, non-parishable/long shelf-life food items and basic needs items or monetary donations for these items to be purchased. Long story short, we know what toll this will have on the people we serve (youth and their families), and we need your help getting them items they need to survive. Though we cannot estimate the toll it will have on the community as a whole, all leftover donations and funds will go to assistance of the community at-large.
*all items quarantined for 4 days prior to delivery and are packaged and sanitized by our healthy staff members using protective gear*

Please visit our Donation page for more details on how you can assist monetarily or with items you already have on hand.

Reminder that your donation is tax deductible whether it is tangible or monetary; just be sure to request the receipt from us.

*all items quarantined for 4 days prior to delivery and are packaged and sanitized by our healthy staff members using protective gear*

[Brief clarification on the photo used above: this photo was taken by our Founder, Megan, who is battling cancer and wears a mask every time she is at treatment and highly populated arenas. We wanted to clarify that we are not wasting supplies for a photo. This is her reality, amongst other peoples reality.]

 

In these COVID-19 times, we are making changes
because we want to ensure you can still receive our Prevention Services!

We have made our Resource page open to the public. Usually, we bring resources and referral information with us to our sites for our service recipients. However, in order to still serve you, we wanted to make sure you all still had access to assistance and growth opportunities.

Our Resource page is updated monthly. Please take advantage of the opportunity to educate yourselves, protect yourselves and strengthen your families with our resources. If you would like additional assistance, please contact us and we can refer your to one of our trusted experts in life.

If you: have a resource, are a resource, or know of a resource that you would like for us to put on our resource list, let us know!

 

Child Abuse Prevention Awareness Month is APRIL!

We have gathered a few resources for our fellow Providers but also, for our families that may be experiencing feelings that could be detrimental for both the adult and the child. We want you to know that these feelings are only negative if you are not willing to get assistance with them.

If you see a child in trouble, you can report concerns at 1-800-252-5400

Call the Abuse Hotline toll-free 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, nationwide, or report with our secure website and get a response within 24 hours.
