Farmingville, NY – On April 24th, Councilmember Jonathan Kornreich joined the Drug Prevention Coalition and the Center for Prevention and Outreach’s SB IMPACT Coalition for a Drive-Thru Wellness Day at the Port Jefferson Station/Terryville Chamber of Commerce Train Car. This event was held on DEA National Prescription Drug Take Back Day and encouraged residents to safely dispose of expired, unused, or unwanted prescription drugs and vaping products. The prescription drugs were collected by Suffolk County Police Department Sixth Precinct officers. Residents were also asked to contribute to a Food Drive to benefit local food pantries.

Councilmember Kornreich said, “It was great to join my neighbors in our effort to promote public health and a drug-free community. I thank everyone who pitched in to make it a success, especially community based organizations like the LI Prevention Resource Center, YMCA Family Services, Port Jefferson Station/Terryville Chamber of Commerce, Port Jefferson Station/Terryville Civic Association, and our Suffolk County Police Department 6th Precinct COPE unit for helping us keep dangerous prescription drugs out of the wrong hands and for making our community safe every day.”
