MONCKS CORNER, S.C. (WCBD) – Wednesday is National Overdose Awareness Day and the Berkeley County Coroner’s Office teamed up with the Kennedy Center to hand out free NARCAN and other supplies for Berkeley County residents.

Berkeley County officials are spreading awareness to help save lives.

“In observance of National Overdose Awareness Day,” Wehme Hutto, executive director of the Kennedy Center, said, “we’re having a Narcan and Deterra giveaway, and we’re also giving away fentanyl strips.”

They say Wednesday’s NARCAN giveaway is to address the recent uptick in overdoses they’ve seen in the area.
