Worcester Announces New Community Opioid Awareness Project

Posted: Updated:

NEWARK, Md.- Worcester Goes Purple has announced a new community-driven opioid awareness art project in which community members are invited to paint rocks purple in honor of those who have died from an overdose or are struggling with addiction.  

The rocks will then be used in the River of Hope art installation, an art rock river, with the help of grant funding from the Worcester County Arts Council.

Those who wish to participate in the project can look for the purple WGP table at the following upcoming events; Blessings of the Combines, Fourth Friday Street Festival, Small Town Throw-Down, and SunFest.

WGP says the finished installation will be displayed at the Atlantic Club in Ocean City. 

For a list of event dates and more information on the River of Hope art installation, contact Debbie Smullen. For more information about the Worcester Goes Purple campaign contact Carrie N. Sterrs.
