Proceeds: An Event to Help Change the Opioid “Script”
All the fun, all the music and magic and dance of Collinsville HOT, all the community we create is dedicated to opioid/addiction epidemic. We really need to write our own script against addiction.
For that purpose, Canton Main Street (organizer of Collinsville HOT) will make a donation from the festival to the Canton Mental Health Task force. Donation jars will be available to the public to amplify these much-needed funds.
We have invited folks from the Canton Mental Health Task Force, Community of Concern and Youth Services Bureau to help members of the community illustrate and write THEIR script against addiction during the festival.
We hope you can join us in educating ourselves and supporting each other in our community’s fight against addiction. Together, we can stem the tide of opioid related overdoses and deaths.
