LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - THV11 is joining the fight to save a generation. We have already shined a light on the opioid epidemic, its causes and its unrelenting spread.
And, when we talk about comebacks, we know there is no easy street - but there is a Wolfe Street.
Part of the challenges of transforming back into the real world are being able to deal with daily daily challenges. It's why they work closely with 65 agencies.
Those agencies include everything from detox to chemical free facilities to treatment centers to counselors to interventionists to Christian treatment centers.
In the fight against opioid addiction, Wolfe Street has proven its worth, relying on private donations and an endless supply of hope.
And now I'd like to invite you to be a part of that solution. On May 4, we join the United Way and volunteers at Wolfe Street as we collect items that we'll put in Addiction Recovery Care Packages.
Journals and notebooks, candy and lozenges, blankets, stationary, socks, or anything you think would help.
Items donated can not contain alcohol, such as hand sanitizers or mouthwash. Also, any bound items like books or notebooks should be bound by glue. These items are usually not allowed in the treatment centers for the safety of the patients.
From 5 p.m. until 7 p.m. THV11 will be right out in front of Wolfe Street at 10th and Louisiana in downtown Little Rock.
