Community Spotlight: CEMPA-Donate Your Empty Laundry Bottles

CEMPA Community Care strives to help the community by providing care for those who are impacted by illnesses through support services, treatment, prevention and person-centered care. UTC’s MPH Program partners with CEMPA to help support their efforts through collaborations with faculty and students. CEMPA serves on the MPH’s External Advisory Board and as a member of the Community Engagement Committee. One program that CEMPA offers is a harm-reduction service called The Syringe Trade and Education Program of TN (STEP TN). STEP TN is creating opportunities for safe disposal of syringes, decreasing the spread of diseases, and promoting overdose prevention with the use of naloxone distribution in Chattanooga, TN. STEP TN needs the public’s help with donations of twist top empty laundry detergent bottles. The bottles will be used to safely secure syringes submitted for disposal. Please drop off your bottles at the CEMPA prevention building on 1042 East Third ST, or the1885 Grill Restaurant located on 3914 St. Elmo Ave.
