MTAC Spring Drug Take Back Day Success

Community Collaboration is Key

On Saturday, April 24th, Massapequa Takes Action Coalition (MTAC) held its Spring Drug Take Back Event and collected 150 pounds of pharmaceuticals. The Massapequa Elks Lodge #2162 and Nassau County Police collaborated with MTAC to make the Spring Drug Take Back a success. Massapequa Elks’ volunteers eagerly supported the MTAC initiative and greeted residents with enthusiasm. Assemblyman Michael Durso attended the Spring Take Back in support of MTAC’s Secure Monitor Dispose Campaign.  To become involved in MTAC’s initiatives and learn more about MTAC’s prevention efforts, you can like MTAC on Facebook, go to or contact Larissa Singh, MTAC Project Coordinator, at (516) 799-3203 x132 or email
