Operation Big Red Med Disposal Box:
With generous donations from institutions and individuals, our not-for-profit has been able to purchase, install and maintain Big Red Med Disposal Boxes in retail pharmacies and police departments. We intend to make Operation Big Red Med Disposal Box a national program that will brand the concept of responsible medication disposal and make the disposal of unwanted medications free and convenient.
Distinguished Student Lecturer Program:
Our not-for-profit engages 11th and 12th grade students to prepare PowerPoint presentations about responsible medication disposal. The students give live presentations to community civic organizations such as Rotary, Lions, Elks, chambers of commerce, churches and synagogues in their communities. The students benefit by learning PowerPoint, a software which is used extensively in business and education. The students gain experience at public speaking while educating the public about the benefits and importance of responsible medication disposal. Each civic organization makes a financial contribution to the student's future educational endeavers.
Speaking of Responsible Medication Disposal:
Need a speaker? Do you want your group to learn about why responsible medication disposal is important and how it benefits your community. Operation Big Red Med Disposal Box has just what you want - a great speaker with an interesting, engaging and eye-opening animated PowerPoint presentation.
