In support of International Overdose Awareness Day (IOAD) the LTM Foundation, Bloomingdale and Glendale Heights Police Departments plan to host a community event to raise awareness about the dangers of drug misuse. Join us to learn what is being done to address this epidemic from our community leaders including Senator Tom Cullerton, DuPage County Sheriff James Mendrick, Lorraine Martin, National Safety Council President and CEO, and LTM Foundation President Felicia Miceli.

If you have lost some to addiction, bring a framed photo for the memorial table.
