Rep. Windhorst to Join Senator Fowler and Metropolis PD for FREE Prescription Drug Drop Off Event

State Sen. Dale Fowler (R-Harrisburg) and State Rep. Patrick Windhorst (R-Metropolis) are joining with MCDAC (Massac County Drug Awareness Coalition) and the Metropolis Police Department to hold a Prescription Drug Drop Off Day.

Rep. Windhorst says he appreciates the assistance of the Metropolis Police Department and the Massac County Drug Awareness Coalition and the opportunity to provide a badly needed service to his constituents.

“Having hosted previous prescription drug drop off events, I have been encouraged by the terrific response and the dozens of pounds of drugs that we have been able to keep out of the wrong hands, to help alleviate clutter for people, and to keep our environment clean,” Windhorst said. “I appreciate the close working relationship we’ve developed with the Metropolis Police Department and the Massac County Drug Awareness Coalition.”
