Queen Creek Fentanyl Awareness event Aug. 20 at Founders’ Park

For the second year, a Queen Creek Fentanyl Awareness event will take place from noon to 4 p.m. this Saturday, Aug. 20 at Founders’ Park in Queen Creek.

The Facing Fentanyl Prevention and Awareness Day at Founders’ Park, 22407 S. Ellsworth Road, is a free family and pet-friendly event that will also showcase food trucks, shaved ice, bounce house, Narcan training, fentanyl test strips and free raffle prizes.

Event organizers say it’s in remembrance of the loved ones who lost their lives due to illicit fentanyl poisoning and to acknowledge the devastation this drug brings to hundreds of thousands of affected family members and friends. Advocates and educators will use this day to raise awareness and educate the public about the dangers of fentanyl.
