Hendry County Empties Medicine Cabinets

Drop Off Unused Drugs At LaBelle And Clewiston Stores

Because medications should not be flushed down the toilet or thrown in the garbage, and because they pose a risk to children in the home Drug Free Hendry County and the Hendry County Sheriff's Office have partnered with J&J and K&M Family Pharmacies to offer this community program for the 3rd time in Hendry County. 

70% of people over 12 who abuse prescription drugs report they get their drugs from a family member. Don't be the supplier. 

Ayman Kaki, owner of J&J Pharmacy in Labelle, will be providing hamburgers and hot-dogs to those who come by the store.

Medication drops offs will be welcomed during Operation Medicine Cabinet between 10 am and 1 pm on November 5th, 2011 at the stores in LaBelle and Clewiston.
